Video of the Day: Jungle Youth – “Don’t Do It”

I love how strong this song starts. “I refuse to be another one of your mistakes.” And it keeps that strength throughout the whole song. The vocals really hammer home that defiance. As for the video itself, it follows along 3 people (the band members I believe, but I don’t know if we can assume they are playing themselves) as they hang out doing fun young people things, like exploring in nature, and various urban settings, as well and driving around and hanging out. There seems to be somewhat of a subtle love triangle that forms throughout the video, with the two guys both seeming to enjoy flirting with the girl, but one guy seems to break through and hold her hand, put his arm around her, etc. Eventually, when something goes wrong with the car, the two guys get in a fight. It really reminds me a lot of how these tiny jealousies, if unchecked, can build until they explode. I love the subtle build and the rich imagery of the entire video.

Jungle Youth is a young band from Quebec City that was born out of a common love for music. In March 2018, the band emerges from the darkness by releasing their version of Loud’s “Toutes les femmes savent danser”. The cover rapidly reaches 2000 views in less than a week and gains media attention by being featured in Le Journal de Québecand on the website of CKOI 96.0. Refusing to identify to one style of music in particular, Jungle Youth projects a modern yet retro sound that combines elements that are Pop, Rock and Indie all at the same time.
