Toro y Moi Shares Sun-Soaked Short Film ‘Goes By So Fast’ with Eric Andre

A companion piece to his latest album 'Mahal'

Last updated:

Chaz Bear, aka Toro y Moi, officially released Goes By So Fast: A Mahal Film, a new short film starring himself and comedian Eric Andre. Directed by longtime collaborator Harry Israelson, the film brings the world of Mahal to life amidst a heat wave in beautiful San Francisco.

“Having worked with Chaz for over a decade, there’s been this natural evolution of our storytelling; with ‘Mahal,’ from day one we discussed a companion film. To me, the idea was to create a world around the record. So listeners could stick their heads inside the album cover itself and have a look around. Our challenge was to make a film that felt evocative of the album’s themes and lyrics and together I think we made something truly weird and unique.” – Harry Israelson

Chaz plays himself while Andre is Panther, a high-energy, sporadic, homemade horchata-drinking dog dad driving Chaz into the city. Goes By So Fast is a fun combination of fiction, documentary, animation, and concert film.

“Given the more serious themes of the record, Harry and I both felt it fitting to come up with something humorous and fun. I wanted to make something that humanized the music and hopefully myself in ways.” – Chaz Bear

The film, written by Israelson and Sidney Schleiff, first premiered at Brain Dead Studios in Los Angeles back in April. Mahal is the seventh studio album from Toro y Moi, his first since 2019’s Outer Peace. It features appearances from Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Sofie Royer, Salami Rose Joe Louis, and The Mattson 2.

You can watch Goes By So Fast in the player above and listen to Mahal on Spotify and Apple Music.
