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.
