We are thrilled to premiere rising indie rock quintet Hillsburn’s new video for “Young Desire”. Watch the video below!

The video, which vocalist/guitarist Paul 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.

“Young Desire’ is a story about the first love of two LGBTQ kids,” says Aarntzen. “I wanted to undercut a little bit the idea that young love is innocent, light, easy. 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.”
