Themes of loss are turned upside down in Jai Wolf's "Starlight" video, directed by Andrew Donoho. 

Emotions rise and fall with the Bangladeshi producer's signature sound as we watch two adventurous brothers race their bikes through the streets of Los Angeles in search of a fallen star. Night falls over the City of Angels, but bed time is of no consequence here. Extraterrestrials await in foggy forests, but maybe things aren't quite what they seem.

“When Andrew, the director, pitched me the idea, I thought he nailed the emotional weight of the song," Jai Wolf says in a press release. "I always found 'Starlight' to have that feeling of youthful nostalgia, and I think Andrew really brought out those themes with the addition of some dark sci-fi undertones. The video does a great job of bringing that feeling to life.” 

"Starlight" kicks off Jai Wolf's new year in the wake of a killer round of festival dates and headline performances in 2017. Of course, the new video captures some of those kindness-from-strangers moments that set the theme for his Kindred Spirits EP and tour. New music is sure to follow in the months to come.
