Troye Sivan - YOUTH

Australian YouTuber turned musical oversharer Troye Sivan has uploaded the video for his single ‘YOUTH’, the first major cut from his debut LP Blue Neighbourhood.

Preceded by the WILD EP and its accompanying trilogy of music videos, Blue Neighbourhood hit the top ten in both Sivan’s home country and the US back in December of last year. Boasting co-writing credits from songwriting maverick Emile Haynie and the similarly hipster inclined synthpop singer Allie X, Sivan’s album seems to have made a strength of his tendency to filter the teenage psyche through a familiar, Tumblr influenced lens.

As consciously zeitgeist-y as his music can be, Sivan has garnered applause for the frank approach he takes to the romances described in his lyrics. This is typified by the baseball cap he dons in the new video, proudly inscribed with the words ‘MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN’; there’s no Sam Smith style pronoun dodging going on here.
