Friday Night Trend shows potential with their ‘Wasted Youth’ video

Friday Night Trend is the Toronto-based punk rock band that already has the Friday Night Trend EP in 2013 and a single, ‘Wasted Youth’, under their belt. They’ve got a great zany style, which is clear to see when you look at the cover to this single. To accompany this nifty song, they recently came out with a video.

FridayNightTrendThe video jumps between an extended running sequence with a guy who soon joins a running mate near the middle of the video, and a performance from the band in some sort of art studio. I like the simplicity of the cityscape – these guys didn’t feel the need to show landmarks, but just displays storefronts as a backdrop to this character.

It’s pretty basic and forgetful, the destination is less impressive than the journey as he buys chocolate milk and candy from a gas station and sits down on the curb – oddly content with the whole thing. I guess the point is that someone his age should really have something better to do – unless the band is getting across a message that it’s the small things that matter the most. Anyhow, the song is pretty catchy and is the most resonating thing about the production.
