Watch the Mowgli’s ‘Kids in Love’ Behind-the-Scenes Video [PREMIERE]
The Mowgli's are set to drop their sophomore album Kids in Love tomorrow (April 14), and we've got a behind-the-scenes look at the video for the title track right here on PopCrush!
If you've never listened to the Mowgli's before, "Kids In Love" is the perfect introduction to the alt-rock band. Hailing from southern California, their West Coast influence is a pretty obvious one — the Mowgli's brand of folk-rock is upbeat and heavy on the happy, inflected with horns and group vocals. They're like a more Vitamin D–infused version of the Lumineers.
Their video for "Kids in Love" proves that their self-proclaimed "message of positivity and love" (their words) extends past their music and well into their everyday lives. They seem genuinely happy to be around each other, and considering their motto is straight out of the Beatles' discography, the demonstration of that positive attitude doesn't feel forced.
Colin Dieden said of the title track, "I wrote 'Kids In Love' about the amazing energy and insecurities that exist in young love, and how sometimes it feels like we spend the rest of our lives trying to find that feeling again." It's a relatable sentiment — there is no real way to properly re-create those first feelings of puppy love, or even of liking things with the same intensity as you did before you learned to control your hormones.
