It’s the time to rejoice for the fans of 5 Seconds of Summer because they have just released their music video of ‘Jet Black Heart’ and the amazing fact about the video is, it’s actually made by fans, pouring out their colourful emotions. Astounding is quite an understatement for the video!
When I started to write about the video of ‘Jet Black Heart’, I was engulfed by so many emotions at a time. Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Ashton Irwin, and Calum Hood actually proved that they are indeed growing up and ‘Jet Black Heart’ is a burning example of that. The main aspect which inspired the lyrics is ‘Everybody’s got their demons’ and my word, that’s absolutely relevant because there are ample amount of people out there who are struggling with their inner demons like depressions and such. And this video is a tribute to those of their fans, who are struggling every day, to keep themselves alive.
The video is ‘Jet Black Heart’ creates a sheer sense of melancholia and later on it gets escorted with a relief and a little ounce of sunshine, may be an implementation of there’s always hope. The interesting fact of the video is it opens up with snippets of fans lip syncing the song, wrapped up in their own imperfections, misery, heartaches, tears and I think that’s what overwhelms us the most.
The song ‘Jet black Heart’ belongs to their recent album ‘Sounds Good Feels Good’ and the boys of the Pop-Punk band has dedicated the video to their fans. They even showed us a message in the beginning of the video.
According to Perez Hilton, it showed, “We asked our fans to help make this video. We wanted to hear your stories. We were overwhelmed by the response. This video goes out to you.”
If a few snippets of video consisting mere seconds can bring tears to our eyes, then those are stories indeed. In a 4 minutes and 5 seconds video, these boys took us in an intense ride, and we don’t basically have anything to say about the pop rock number, which is absolutely brilliant. The song actually makes us realize that we are perfect in our own imperfections, because perfection is boring and may be these lines are a mirror of that thought, “The blood in my veins/ Is made of mistakes/ Let’s forget who we are/ And dive into the dark/ As we burst into colours/ Returning to life.”
Well excuse me while I wipe my tears, but you can see the full video of ‘Jet Black Heart’ here.
