There isn’t a more choice aesthetic for hunting Bigfoot than the mossy west coast wilderness. Canadian band Said The Whale chose to frame their new single “Everything She Touches is Gold to Me” by a Wes Anderson-inspired music video, with band members racing to uncover the mystery of the legendary beast.
Said The Whale has built a dedicated fan following in over a decade as a band. They continue to stay relevant in the Canadian alternative scene with singles climbing radio charts, snagging Juno awards, and playing festivals. It can be pegged down to their songs' distinct instrumental moments. You simply cannot be bored listening to their tracks – point proven on this latest single. Dancing keys open to a burst of drums at the chorus as the band's singer Tyler Bancroft belts out the song title over and over.
Matching the lighthearted vibe, the single's music video is a quirky take on a monster hunt; band members playing characters like news reporter and dangerously obsessed hunter. Inspired by Bancroft's first date with his long-time partner, “Everything She Touches is Gold to Me” is a giddy narrative on the first flutters of a budding romance.
