My Silent Bravery – “18” (Video)

Matt Wade, better known as My Silent Bravery, is back with another set of strong hooks and shining visuals to match. If the last video of his we covered — “Got It Going On” — had some sense of the 90s to it, his new track, “18”, is all 80s vibes and nostalgia. It’s fitting: the track details a longing for youth and the fresh pop-cultured feelings of young love. This is a track that will send you back to a time when everything was at once simpler and more complicated.

Because there is that element of the personal, Wade’s voice dives into the emotional at times, bringing a candid passion to the song and fuelling the multi-layered depth. The song is big and rich — almost an 80s ballad in size — and grows. The accompanying clip finds narrative in a house party decked out with fairy lights and curtains. The aesthetic is dreamy and clear, as are the protagonists: a young woman and a young man who want to be together but must make their way through some obstacles before they can meet poolside at the end of the night. It’s a classic tale of cinema and high school life alike, though glitches into a twist ending for a touch of My Silent Bravery originality.
