Hailing from Australia’s Gold Coast, electronic, indie-pop duo Golding have returned with their catchiest song to date, in the form of “Boxing Underwater,” the duo have called upon the vocals of Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Cailin Russo the song and accompanying video from two different continents (amidst a global pandemic) Golding’s collaboration with Russo explores the story of a young couple navigating the waters of a long-term relationship.
Co-written by pop songwriter powerhouse Jarryd James, Golding’s collaboration with Russo explores the story of a young couple navigating the waters of a long-term relationship, bringing with it a mood of wistful, melodic, and undeniably beautiful atmosphere. Cailin’s underrated tonic vocals coincide perfectly with Jay’s to create soothing, harmonious, hooky melodic structure, intertwined with their sharp production styling, which works well to showcase their finest work to date.
The music video for "Boxing Underwater", visually emphasises the song's aforementioned aesthetics, in the way it is able to showcase the multiple varying sides and emotions of the characters' relationship. Jay and Cailin’s lyrics are additionally a focused narrative.
