Is there any one among us who doesn’t have a complex relationship to our generation? For live-out-loud millennials, many impressions have been drawn into the limelight. Social media, after all, is a keystone. The Stolen and Patternist have joined forces to offer their own insightful critique with their single “Millennial” — the video for which you can watch above.
The track itself is stuck-in-your head-for-days levels of catchy. The energy is big, youthful, and easy to dance to: as proven by the clip’s millennial protagonist. Alt-rock meets pop meets lyrics about feeling outside of your own community. There is no doubt this track is setting up a band on the rise.
Whether ordering food, juuling, or putting on air pods — millennial behaviour is showcased. The video plays with monochrome until a virtual reality headset bursts everything into colour. It is celebratory and critical at once — but most importantly, it’s handfuls of fun.
The Stolen will be releasing their first full-length record on May 31st. Until then, you can find the band on their website, Spotify, and Facebook page. You can also follow The Stolen and Patternist on Twitter.
