In 2013, two years after his first apearence – with Iron, a song full of light and an already-cult videoclip (over 25 millions views on You Tube) – Woodkid, Polish born, French reared, New York based artist, released the eagerly awaited album ‘The Golden Age’. A very ambitious album that dragged the young man everybody wants to work with, even further and faster.
Woodkid is the musical artist, the songwriter/singer/lyricist/producer, who has made this beautiful record ‘The Golden Age’. The visual aspect remains hugely important with Woodkid directing all his own videos and turning his live performances into a spectacle rarely seen in the world of pop music. “When I started playing my own music, I wanted it to be as tall as a skyscraper. Images can achieve that. A really big orchestra can also achieve that.”
This creative ambition and artistic freedom have allowed Woodkid to make such a unique sounding and powerful album as ‘The Golden Age’. “It’s all about that time of passage between adolescence and adulthood, into that confusing hyper-reality,” Woodkid notes. “I talk about those perceptible changes of the body, that budding sexuality, wanting to be different from the norm, like in the first line on ‘Run Boy Run’: ‘Run Boy Run!/This world is not made for you’.” It’s about love, life and death. Striving for your own identity. Those basic crises of adolescence. “I always play the part of the sympathetic observer.”
