Watch: Daughter - "Youth"

When I learned that Daughter had released a music video for "Youth", my mind was instantly imagining the possible scenarios they would've gone with for a video. It didn't at all occur to me that the route Daughter would go would be one as simple, minimalistic, and beautiful as the song itself.

Directed by The Mitcham Submarine, the video for "Youth" is really just a performance of the song by the band. That might sound boring in theory but it's artfully done. Filmed on a large black stage with spotlights illuminating the band members, it's gorgeous. The positions of the band members will change, subtly, as the focus moves to a rather important part they play but mostly, it's just varying shots of the band playing "Youth" in its entirety.
