Just when you thought it was safe to surf YouTube again without being exposed to a lesson in human anatomy, The Neighbourhood frontman Jesse Rutherford has dropped his trousers for the band’s somber “Afraid” video. But unlike fellow video nudists like Miley Cyrus, the indie-rocker lets it all hang out (keep your eyes peeled at 2:08 minutes to see what he’s working with).
It’s an interesting move for an act on the verge of exploding. The Neighbourhood’s current single “Sweater Weather” is shooting up the Billboard Hot 100 and they are selling out shows across the nation. If nothing else, it will bring some (much deserved) attention to the song, which tackles serious issues like battling with anxiety and depression over ominous, multi-layered production. Watch up top.
Um… so, nice photography? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
