James and Mabel are the anonymous London duo simply known as Gold Fir. They created a buzz with their first single “Night Walk.” “Sirens” is dance-oriented with roots in ’80s R&B and pop vocal styles. Mabel’s voice is a bright light coming through the synthesized funk phrases. The song leads the way for Gold Fir’s 2018 EP.

“We wanted to create a visual that not only tapped into the soul of this song but also embodied the entire emotion of it. This track showed me why I make music. I wrote and recorded it on the spot in 1 or 2 takes, so we decided we wanted the visual to be as unrehearsed and unpremeditated as possible. This group of artists were so incredible and the reason I moved to NYC- to work and collaborate with such beautiful and talented humans. It was such a crazy night. The dancers Elise Ritzel and Eloise DeLuca were so incredibly powerful man I was blown away by how well they improvised. They led me the entire way. TEQUILA and dope humans anything is possible!“
“The Other Side” is Maiden’s second video and the next step in his musical journey.
