The days are slowly getting shorter and the air a few degrees cooler [Ed Note: Until yesterday anyways where it jumped to 81 because we live in a cruel, cruel universe]. With the start of fall and the feeling of the season creeping upon us, Jamie xx released his video for one of 2015s summer anthems, I Know Theres Gonna Be (Good Times) to keep us from completely abandoning the warm freedom of summer. Featuring rapper Young Thug and Jamaican artist Popcaan, the video encompasses the laid back back, feel-good vibes of the track off Jamie xxs latest album, In Colour. Young Thug and Popcaan are the main focus of the video, rapping and singing on rooftops in between flashes of glamorous poolside women in elegant white bathing suits and Jamie xx DJ-ing amongst flashing club lights. The track is colorful and alive, much like the songs many layers of soul, hip-hop, reggae and electronica elements. Though there isn't much of a plot to the video beyond "flashy party," the video emanates the song, keeping us all a bit warm as the colder days approach.
