Crystal Fighters Share Surreal Video For Goin' Harder Featuring Bomba Estéreo

Thursday, 13 December 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Crystal Fighters have shared a surreal video for Goin' Harder featuring Bomba Estéreo.

It was directed by Spanish filmmaker Stanley Sunday. He is part of the O Creative Studio that has previously worked with Solange, A$AP Rocky and Miguel. 

Frontman Bast Pringle said:

“The song was originally inspired by the Hawaiian Indigenous practice of Hoʻoponopono. This means that if there is a disagreement between two parties, a council is held to resolve the issue through communication and dialogue.  Hoʻoponopono literally translates as “I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me” and this is the attitude that both parties are encouraged to adopt.

We thought this was a beautiful message, and couldn’t help but subvert it to make it more fitting in our eyes for the crazy modern world. Instead of Hoʻoponopono we’re ‘Goin goin harder.’ This is also the inspiration behind this very cool new video.

Somewhere in the annals of our subconscious there is the possibility for anything, including extreme polarities: love/hate and war/peace. It’s about what we choose to feel on a conscious level and about what we cannot help but feel as we dream on a subconscious level. How much of the subconscious affects our decisions on a conscious level? How do we cultivate a peace-loving subconscious when we’re being bombarded with disharmony?

We are so stoked to have Bomba Estéreo’s beautiful Li in the video! Hoʻoponopono to you this festive season.”

The track features on the band's 'Hypnotic Sun' EP, which was surprise released in November following the announcement of their spring European tour. The run will conclude with a stop at the O2 Academy Brixton in London on April 4.

Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
