Good Times Go Bad in Young Evils' 'Touch Tone Lovers' – Premiere

Seattle indie-rockers battled hangovers to make the video

By |

Phone sex takes a dark twist in the new video for the Young Evils' song "Touch Tone Lovers," from the Seattle indie-rockers' 2012 EP Foreign Spells. Director Johnny Brookbank tracks a couple's relationship that starts off merry but ends in a murder by scissors and an ensuing rescue mission. "Those are [Brookbank's] kids screaming and crying in the video, and it's absolutely real," says Troy Nelson, the Young Evils' singer and guitarist. "They hated the lights and cameras, and in turn, we hated our hangovers even more, which made the video that much better. Johnny's real patient and focused and we can't wait to work with him again in the near future."
