Aussie YouTube sensation Troye Sivan drops his new music video, “Youth,” from his album Blue Neighbourhood.
My first thought was perhaps the song would be a bit “young-ish” for me, but I like the medium vibe and the anthemic chorus.
Oh, and the pretty colors.
The vid takes us inside a hazy, neon-washed house party where alcohol, sex, and tongue piercings are all the rage. But there are moments of quiet intimacy, too, and nods to… well… youth: light-up sneakers, Care Bears and blanket forts all make an appearance. It ultimately feels like a marriage of maturity and recklessness, as Troye sings about loving too hard and not really caring about the consequences.
