Now, it's not necessarily the most glamorous part of club culture, it might be the most overlooked, but the drive home from a party is an indelible feature. To celebrate the next single "Home" off his soon to be released solo album Electric Lines, Joe Goddard gives us a music video all about the drive home from a show. It's a joyous and magical video, with glimmers of the psychedelic, and it fully embraces a quiet moment not at the forefront of many people's minds, but a moment we are all certain to experience.
The video also serves as a positive response to the backlash against global nightlife culture. For the vast majority of people who spend an amazing night out dancing, leaving the venue is a very simple affair - no death or devastation, no visits to the hospital, no violence or terrorizing of local communities. In reality, the commonplace experience is that it's just a quick hop in a car or on a train and then you're home for much-needed rest.
The world over, politicians are vilifying club culture based on misconceptions or warped statistics, and I'm sure you've seen it on your Facebook newsfeed with the closure of Fabric in London, a plethora of venues in Sydney, Australia, and many DIY spaces in New York City. Never forget, a night out is a beautiful thing. It's a chance to experience art, friendships, and even encounter people that you might not ever get the chance to meet.
