Gang Of Youths shared a beautifully choreographed and cinematic video for their current single “in the wake of your leave.” The new single is the latest release off their upcoming album angel in realtime, due out February 25th on Warner Records.
The official music video for the track was directed by Joel Barney and features the band’s singer Dave Le’aupepe showcasing his musical-like choreography along with a team of dancers.
Joel Barney says, “When I first heard the track, I knew the video had to be larger-than-life. Dave came to me with a ‘Singing in the Rain’ meets ‘Top Hat’ concept that paid homage to the great musicals of the ‘50s and ‘60s. We wanted to merge elements of old school Hollywood with a modern edge.
Using three long takes and the musical-like choreography gave the video a real theatrical feel. I knew Dave was a brilliant performer from working together previously, but we wanted to push him even further outside of his comfort zone. Of course, he nailed it.”
