When Jamie XX—super-producer and one-half of, well, the XX—teased the video for "Gosh" yesterday, the opening track off his year-old debut In Colour, we had no idea now that it would be this hypnotizing.
Directed by Romain Gavras, the clip opens on a zoned-out, couch potato of a man, dressed in all white. But soon he reveals himself to be the leader of a huge army that treks the Chinese town of Tianducheng—on foot, through the streets, and via a series of captivating synchronized moves—and storms its 354-foot tall replica of the Eiffel Tower.
We don't know what it any of it means, but when you realize that the video features more than 400 extras and no use of CGI or other camera trickery, it makes it all the more impressive. Watch it below.
