Following the release of their latest album Lost in Bloom, Toronto-based outfit The Neighbourhood Watch have shared a new video for the album’s track, “20 Year Dream.”
The soft track comes packed with a sweet guitar riff, a driven drumline, and raspy, melancholic vocals. The accompanying video for “20 Year Dream” sees brief shots and slow-motion clips of people and families looking at the camera from their windows, interspersed with powerful shots of The Neighbourhood Watch performing from behind their own windows.
“The song ’20 Year Dream’ is about being happy for the people you used to love,” The Neighbourhood Watch explain of the track. “Accepting that you were standing in the way of their growth – and that they’re better off without you. My favourite lyric is ‘You’ve got your own sense of loving, and it let me down.’ I wrote this track sitting in a garden in Johannesburg, tipsy from an evening at a rooftop bar in Maboneng. I had just cried after a hard call, recognizing that I was letting so many of the people I love down.”
