Conner Youngblood brings fragility to new single 'Los Angeles'

Words: Sam Geary

Conner Youngblood brings his fragile vocal to a new single and video ahead of his debut album.

'Los Angeles' follows 'The Birds of Finland' as the latest offering from 'Cheyenne', out on August 17 via Counter Records.

Directed by Johannes Greve Muskat, the visual for 'Los Angeles' is a beautiful, scenic story that serves as a testament to the distance that can grow between two people.

"The idea of the video came about as Johannes and I were discussing the lyrics of the song and sending pictures back and forth to each other," says Conner. "We both gravitated towards pictures of soviet-style architecture as well as of concept photos of refractions through crystal. There was never any treatment written for it, but once we decided on the tone, we both decided that Armenia was the perfect place to film. The story is Johannes' interpretation of my lyrics, which deal with a fleeting, yet peaceful relationship I once had."

Watch above.

Following his appearances at The Great Escape and Field Day festivals in the UK, he returns for a EU/UK tour this autumn.
