Young The Giant bring the neon paint for “Silvertongue” video

young the giant silvertongue

Young The Giant are just days away from the release of Home of the Strange, and the run-up to the album has included a whole lot of music videos. We’ve got another one to share with you today as the band released the visuals for “Silvertongue.”

“I’ve got that silvertongue,” Sameer Gadhia sings on the song’s ever-repeating hook, and in the video that silvetongue comes with a unique power. Namely, it covers someone in neon body paint when they’re licked. While we don’t think there will ever be a superhero movie featuring that power, it’s an interesting enough concept for a music video. Directed by Patrick Lawler, the video begins with only a few painted individuals until it builds to a climax that features a huge crowd aglow. You can watch the video below.

The band has an extensive tour in the works in support of Home of the Strange, which is out through Fueled By Ramen this Friday, August 12. Tickets are currently on sale for the tour, which will feature Ra Ra Riot at numerous stops throughout.
