Metric debuted a new video for their first single Youth Without Youth from their latest album Synthetica earlier this week and the vibe is a little bit Glam Rock and a little bit ’80s.
Lead singer Emily Haines and her band mates are featured looking all glammed-up, in between slow motion shots of old and young people doing unexpected and unsettling things in a barrage of costumes from various eras.
The video is a mischievous but visually entertaining take on the song, which features an upbeat tempo with Emily taking on an unusual sex-kitten like role.
Justin Broadbent directed the video and says it “blends the old with the new through imagery of themes present throughout Synthetica, while simultaneously and subtly referencing moments from Metric’s career.”
Synthetica dropped June 12! Watch the video for Youth Without Youth below.
