Photo Diary: Youngs' Single Launch by Savvy Creative
Featuring Youngs, Savvy Creative, Nico Ghost, Meat Sauce and Jack Hawkins.
A few weeks ago Melbourne outfit Youngs launched their stunning new single/video clip Serasan Shakes with a big show at Hugs & Kisses featuring Nico Ghost and Orches, along with a plan to film the show using Virtual Reality 360 Degree video like you may have seen floating around lately. Before that video's unveiling though, here's an annotated set from Photography/design collective Savvy Creative and Youngs themselves:
SAVVY CREATIVE: "When I meet the guys from Youngs they're sitting having a smoke on a decrepit couch on the front porch of their North Melbourne home. We say hey without immediately piecing together that I'm their photographer. This kindness sets the tone for the next two days, as I follow them from their last practice, to dinner and beers in Chinatown, setup, soundcheck and their single launch. The guys particularly impressed me with their commitment to creating an experience on the night - from the '360 guys', to Jack Vanzet's artwork, visuals by Meat Sauce and flying me down from Brisbane to help capture the launch with both analogue and digital photography. I feel privileged to have been a part of the night, and loved looking around and seeing a packed out Hugs & Kisses moving and grooving to four guys making damn good music."
