Two Wounded Birds released their new single To Be Young Sunday so in celebration of this, they have also placed the new video for the single online.
To Be Young is the first single to be taken from their self-titled debut album. The video is now available to watch online following it’s premiere on NME.com last Wednesday.
The video was filmed in a 100 year old Carlton cinema in Westgate-on-Sea near the band’s home town of Margate. It was directed by Dom Bridges and boasts bold colours, slick lighting and projected cartoon images that soften the bright backdrop.
With it being filmed in the old building it helps to reveal the song’s nostalgic and romantic tones while still maintaining the band’s rebellious nature.
This is what guitarist Joe Stevens had to say about the shoot: “We made the video in the Carlton Cinema in Westgate On Sea. It’s one of the few places that uses analogue projection. The seats are velvet and the whole place has the feeling of another time. The cartoons are also from a different time. One of them is a journey through space and all the planets have the faces of Gods on them, they look like marbles.
“In the video at one point you can see cows leaning out of the window of a space shuttle and dancing with each other. In another two poor kids in rags go to sleep and wake up in paradise together. Reality is something you don’t consider when you’re young, things like this make total sense and the world’s a better place for it.”
