Youth Fountain have shared a brand new music video in anticipation of their debut full-length album, “Letters To Our Former Selves”. Fans can watch “Helpless / Letters To Our Former Selves” now below.
Guitarist Tyler Zanon shares:
“Helpless / Letters to Our Former Selves are the two intro tracks that I always felt set the vibe, pacing and overall tone of what album stands for and means to me. ‘Helpless’ which contains a few simple lyrics; representing yearning of the past – to commemorate on a given situation that one might have ruined and being able to acknowledge it all, but still having that looming desire to turn back time and fix things”.
He adds: “The continuation of the title track ‘Letters to Our Former Selves’ is what I’ve always felt (lyrically) as a mental note on the person I had been in my early teenage years. I wrote the song when I was 18 as everything was changing and falling apart in life – I thought to re-record it for this album knowing it could fit in with the rest of the songs we had.
As for the concept of the music video – having the ‘floating window panes’ I always felt tied in nicely with the record, or more specifically these two songs. Hearing and playing them now, I’m sort of able to recollect on the person I was or have been. I like to think the symbolism of a ‘window’ is an appropriate representation of looking back on things and having that ability of self-reflection”.
