Cat Velez - 4th Dec 2015

Lisbon-based rock duo Youthless and director Marco Espirito Santo travelled around Portugal for a week, interviewing locals about their future projections regarding politics, economics, ecological disaster, personal aspirations, and used these real interviews as the backbone of their video for Attention, Espirito Santo's fourth for the band.

The lyrics of the track are played under the visuals of the interviewees, making for a diverting effect (and vaguely reminiscent of the opening section of Daniel Wolfe's epic for Paolo Nutini's Iron Sky. It follows one of the central theme's of Youthless's new album by, in Espirito Santo's words, "playing on the sense of tension and anxiety of our days as we speculate over what’s down the line."
