Los Angeles based indie dance-pop producer, DJ and performer Goldroom has released the music video to his new single "Lying To You." The single is the latest to be lifted from his upcoming debut artist album West of the West that he will tour this fall across North America.
The song is one of the several on the album that features vocals sung by Goldroom himself. He features prominently in the video as the captain of a sail boat, steering a troubled couple on the waters off the coast of Catalina Island. The video starts and progresses like one might expect with a loving couple getting ready for a day out on a sail boat. Things seem to be going fine, though there does appear to be some tension.
Things get weird when the main woman sits on the edge of the ship, gets splashed by water, revealing she is part mermaid. The man has his world shattered as his girl disappears into the water.
The video was directed by Tim Nackashi, who Goldroom spoke about fondly in a statement.
"I've been a huge fan of Tim's work for years now, and I completely fell for his idea of taking a stereotypical day on the water and treating it like a vintage thriller with a twist," says Goldroom. "It's a play on words, but I love how the song hints that someone is 'Lying to You' but you can't figure out exactly what's coming."
Goldroom will be touring across the United States and Canada this fall to support the album. He will be joined by his live band and Autograf. The tour kicks off on Sept. 30 in Nashville and ends on Nov. 12 in Seattle. Tickets are on sale now here.
Fans can pre-order West of the West before it is released on Sept. 23.
