5 Seconds of Summer Explore Japanese Rockabilly Culture In Youngblood Video

Friday, 03 August 2018 Written by Huw Baines

5 Seconds of Summer have shared a video for Youngblood.

The single features on the pop-rockers’ recent LP of the same name, while director Frank Borin’s video explores Japanese rockabilly culture. He said:

“About 10 years ago I was shooting in Tokyo and was walking through Yoyogi park when I came upon this huge group of Japanese rockabilly guys and girls. Every Sunday, they were dressed to the nines in full rockabilly gear, doing their hair out in public, taping up their decades old boots, and dancing the day away to '50s music blasting on their boombox.  

“Flash forward to 10 years later, 5SOS was releasing Youngblood and the band and I were collaborating on another video together. The band were really into the idea of highlighting the rockabilly crew and we hung out with them for a couple days. They took us around Tokyo and gave us a peek into their world which really lent itself to the spirit of the song and ultimately became the video.”

5 Seconds of Summer will play two shows apiece in Glasgow, Manchester and London this autumn, alongside stops in Birmingham and Sheffield.

Florence and the Machine - High As Hope (Album Review)
Fri 06 Jul 2018
Florence and the Machine is a name that has become synonymous with OTT pop-rock and sweeping, ethereal elegance. Those turned off by Florence Welch’s banshee wail often overlook the fact that, whether she’s inhabiting a spare ballad or a busy, rousing soundscape, she steadfastly maintains a certain level of composure. This dynamic has worked in the past, but her new album proves that it’s a delicate one to maintain.

James - Living In Extraordinary Times (Album Review)
Wed 08 Aug 2018
Listening to 'Living In Extraordinary Times', the thought occurs that indie-pop stalwarts James aren’t dissimilar to a shark. Such is the Manchester octet’s devotion to exploring fresh textures, with an insatiable forward momentum, that if they stop moving it’s likely they’ll immediately shuffle off to the great gig in the sky. Fortunately, if the band’s most recent output - and especially this effort - is anything to by, they won’t be playing chess with the Grim Reaper any time soon.
