The Howlers have unveiled the video for their nostalgic ripper ‘The Boy I Was Before’.

A compilation of sentimental home video footage of the band when they were younger, it’s a heartwarming set of visuals that play into the track’s lyrical content.

On the video, vocalist and guitarist Adam Young explains, “Growing up in the world we did, in the areas we cut our teeth, everything is stacked against you, but your loved ones shield you from the reality’s of the world around you. So as kids you tend to see the world through the rose tinted specs of youth. We really wanted to reflect these little moments so we asked our families to dig out our childhood videos and photos for this track, not only to really hit home what the song is about but also to show them how thankful we are for that love.”

The East London desert rock trio take a trip down memory lane with a skip in their step on this new number which shines a spotlight on a solid, primal drumbeat and quintessential hip-shaking guitar riffs.

Speaking about the new single, Adam elaborates, “Put simply, ‘The Boy I was Before’ is a track about growing up in a world that is stacked against you and holding onto the dreams we have as kids. When you’re younger you see the world through rose-tinted glasses, and when you grow up in areas like we did, the idea that you can do anything is systematically reinforced in you as a child, because unbeknown to you as a kid it goes against all the odds.”
