It truly seems like Yungblud can do no wrong. The career of this unique lad from “Donny” has skyrocketed in the past couple of years and doesn’t look like it will be slowing down anytime soon, and we couldn’t be happier.
Yungblud, aka Dominic Harrison, has achieved success in both the mainstream and alternative music scenes by being his authentic self and it is so refreshing to see. His self-directed and created latest video, ‘God Save Me, But Don’t Drown Me Out’, is relatable and powerful…and also super cute.
The video follows a day in the life of Yungblud and his teddy bear companion, who helps him gain confidence, deal with bullies, and stand up to those making him feel worthless. But the twist at the end makes the payoff so much more beautiful.
“This video is for anyone laying in their bedroom at 4am wondering why they aren’t good enough,” Yungblud said in a statement. “I wanted to paint a picture of what depression really feels like, where everyone can be screaming at you, but you just can’t hear anything at all.
“I wanted this video to ignite a resemblance or a spark of self-love to highlight the idea that if you ever feel like you can’t go on, it can get better. you are brilliant, you are an individual and there has only ever been one you and there will only ever be one of you.”
He added: “I loved making this video, it’s my directorial debut with my partner in crime Gavin Gottlich. I’m excited and I hope it helps people. Everyone has their own inner teddy bear, all you gotta do is just let it out. It might just save your life.”
The single will appear on the upcoming debut album Weird, released November 13 2020.
