Vancouver’s Youngblood, fronted by the charismatic Alexis Young, have premiered a video for their latest single “Better When You’re Close”. The track was produced by Juno-nominated DJ Sleepy Tom (Diplo, Martin Solveig). It will be featured on the band’s forthcoming EP Fantasy Love, due out this July.
“’Better When You’re Close’ is about romantic obsession to the point of possession- where you feel like your entire body and mind have been involuntarily taken over by the mere proximity of another person and you’ve lost your sense of self,” explains Alexis Young. “It’s about coming to terms with the realities of putting love and lust on a pedestal, and just how quickly a person can become consumed by infatuation of the highest degree. Crippling, consuming, and it also has a sweet bass line that you can dance to, because why not.”
