“‘Kids’ is a very special song for us” says frontman Sam Little. “It’s the first song we ever wrote. It’s where we started but it’s also why we’re here so we wanted to give it another spot in the limelight. The song itself is a modern day spin on a Romeo and Juliet love story. That feeling of wanting to run away and be happy despite life throwing all its troubles and woes at you and how love is sometimes all the push you need to get out of a rut. I think the new video for it portrays how true love works. It’s happiness, it’s arguments, it’s being together through everything, and sticking it out.”
The Gospel Youth’s debut album Always Lose is out now via Rise/Velocity Records. The album was produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Kids in Glass Houses, Bring Me the Horizon, Twin Atlantic)
