American songwriter Briston Maroney has shared the video for his gorgeous guitar pop hymn 'Fool's Gold'.
The artist's new 'Indiana' EP is a real joy, a refreshing blast of jangle-tinged indie recorded at a location in rural Kentucky.
EP highlight 'Fool's Gold' revels in the atmosphere of the South, and it owes a debt to Briston's decision to move back to Kentucky.
There's a taste of summer in the air, with his lilting vocal wrapping itself around an easeful melody, one part Byrds and two parts Big Star.
He comments: "'Fool’s Gold' was one of the first songs I wrote when I moved back to Nashville. It was the first time I realised that I had built up moving back to Nashville in my mind and it ended up not being what I expected. Unfortunately, it was the reality of something I didn’t want becoming real and trying to take it all with a grain of salt."
"As for the video, we wanted the video to be aesthetically pleasing while not taking itself too seriously. It’s also me humbly admitting that I was a jackass for expecting things to go the way I wanted them to."
Tune in now.
