The Australian popstar takes us on a journey through youth with fellow Dazed 100 contender Amandla Stenberg
The Australian pop star, Dazed 100-er and apparent expert teen house party thrower has dropped the hazy, pastel-shaded video for “Youth”. It’s like any other crazy party you've been to as a teenager, except less Red Stripe and more heart-shaped balloons and fairy lights, plus Amandla Stenberg is hanging out.
After a few days of teasing on Twitter, Troye Sivan released the visuals to go with the single from his debut album, Blue Neighbourhoods. It’s been a long time coming – the first video from the album came out late last year. Sivan whiles away the time dancing in balloon-filled rooms, flirting with a guy on a pile of Care Bears and hanging out with actress, activist and fellow Dazed 100 contender Amandla Stenberg, as she nearly pierces her tongue with a cocktail stick. Party.
Following the release, the ex-Youtuber tweeted his thanks to his fans for their positive reception, including a shot of a cap bearing the slogan ‘Make America Gay Again’ that made appeared in the video. Sivan and Stenberg are still in the running for Dazed 100 so don't forget to vote here. In the meantime, you can catch the full video below.
