Numb yourself.

It's often the quiet moments on an album that make the most impact. After my interview with the band a few months ago, that's been incredibly apparent to me in Citizen's newest record Everybody Is Going to Heaven. The record takes what made Citizen appeal to so many with Youth; hyper-catchy choruses and unhindered emotion, and found a way to both amplify every tick and moment of their songwriting. In this the band has made a stunning, strange new video for "Yellow Love."

Citizen's new video for "Yellow Love" directed by Max Moore focuses on a man and a woman behind a pale purple background. The film progresses, showing the two shedding their clothing, and pulling out knives. They force the knives upon themselves, causing a strange reaction that plays out for the rest of the duration. One could expound that it's a visual representation of the song's lyrics seen real. Decide what it means to you.
