EXCLUSIVE: Hillsburn ‘Young Desire’ Video Premiere

Canadian 5-piece Hillsburn are heading to the UK for the first ever shows at Focus Wales and The Great Escape. Ahead of their arrival we’ve got the premiere for their new video ‘Young Desire’, from their latest album The Wilder Beyong set for a UK release on May 4th via LHM Records.

The video for ‘Young Desire’, which was shot and co-directed by singer/guitarist Paul Aarntzen, follows a woman who returns to her high school and has a surreal encounter with her younger self. It depicts her becoming absorbed in and ultimately unraveling under the weight of her memories. The lead role is played by Debbie Perrott, who is also the mother of Hillsburn’s Rosanna and Clayton Burrill.

‘Young Desire’ is a story about the first love of two LGBTQ kids. “I wanted to undercut a little bit the idea that young love is innocent, light, easy,” says Aarntzen. “It can affect you forever. How people react to you when you first express outwardly your feelings of love can shape you and how you move through the world for the rest of your life.”

The band has announced their first ever UK shows for May this year. The dates are:

May 12 – Focus Wales, Wrexham
May 18 – The Great Escape Festival / Brighton
