News__ Youth Lagoon “July”

January 10, 2012 | By

A world where only the super attractive survive, especially ones that look like Jessica Simpson

Youth Lagoon’s new video for the song “July” is a beautiful, odd story about a couple who survives (we think) a deadly outbreak that’s killing everyone in their small town. This simple, soft video (much like their video for “Montana”, also directed by Tyler T. Williams) reminds us a little of Twin Peaks and of a handful of other 80s-style small town movies of the past. Youth Lagoon (aka Trevor Powers) writes dark, ethereal songs that make us want to cry. This song is no exception. The video, however, makes us want bouncing ponytails and cute 50's cardigans. Is that wrong?

Watch the video for Youth Lagoon’s “July” below.
