The Washington DC-based garage pop quartet, Typefighter, has been making a name for themselves in the local scene with two EPs under their belts and a full-length on the way. To help hype their highly anticipated debut album, The End Of Everything, we're excited to premiere the video for the record's infectious single "You When You're Older." Watch the clip above.
"'You When You're Older' is a song I wrote sober in my room while working through a lot of heavy stuff," vocalist Ryan McLaughlin divulges. "I recorded the song with my bandmates while drunk and having a blast. That contrast was fitting because the song is about stubbornly holding onto immaturity. I view silliness/absurdity as a very important window to enjoyment of the moments you should be enjoying as you get older. I had been thinking a lot about getting older and how it was getting more difficult to enjoy those moments. But I kept coming to the conclusion of 'fuck that.' The whole idea around the video is trying to execute a simple idea and just embracing the embarrassment of fucking it all up, as I would have done when I was a little kid. So we locked ourselves in a room for a day with a GoPro and played the song a million times and let things get weird. Thanks to editor Bryan King for making some sort of sense out of it."
The End Of Everything is set for an April 22 release via DC's own Huge Witch Records. Typefighter has some shows coming up to celebrate the album. Check out dates below.
