The Good Lovelies lift the weight of middle-aged cares with their video for ‘Young at Heart’. The Canadian trio Caroline Marie Brooks, Kerri Ough and Susan Passmore have released the first single and this video from their new album ‘We Will Never Be the Same’.
The video starts as dancer Jillian Peever places headphones on and begins to dance. As the music sweeps over her she takes her solo dance party throughout the house. “Though I wouldn’t change a single thing, the weight of some days still ruins me”, the realities of everyday life are acknowledged but are alleviated by the repeated refrain of “I am Young at Heart”. Midway through the song director Simon Paluck makes the bold choice to stop the music. Peever removes her headphones and the music fades away. Until she opens a door and finds herself in the middle of a multigenerational dance party in the garden behind the house.
“It’s about learning to let go by finding the kid within, dancing in the kitchen or riding the mattress down the stairs with a squeal of laughter. We repeat “I am young at heart” over and over because we want to remember to feel it and never lose our grip on how good it is to feel young.” – Caroline Brooks
Working with the producer team of Joshua Van Tassel and Christine Bougie (who both also performed on the album), ‘We Will Never Be The Same’ was written and produced in cottages across Canada, including a cottage owned by the legendary broadcaster/author Stuart McLean. The record was finessed and finalized at Toronto’s Union Sound. ‘We Will Never Be the Same’ will be available on 6th October via Outside Music.
