The single comes off their sophomore release The Wilder Beyond out now. Purchase the album HERE.
The band had this to say about the song:
‘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 singer/guitarist and songwriter Paul 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 video, which Aarntzen also shot and co-directed, 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 unravelling 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.
Hillsburn features Paul Aarntzen (vox/guitar), Rosanna Burrill (vox/violin), Clayton Burrill (vox/guitar), Jackson Fairfax-Perry (piano/keys) and Clare Macdonald (percussion). For more information on Hillsburn, visit: http://www.hillsburn.com/
More information on the release will be announced as it’s available.
