Hailing from Southern California, The Millennial Club is a dream pop quartet whose songs about love and heartache are incredibly catchy and intoxicating. Told through dance-inducing synths of the 80s and pop beats of the 90s, the band, made up of singer-guitarist Andres Owens, bassist-keyboardist Jared Ortiz, guitarist-saxophonist Jake Stevenson and drummer Tyler Kamei, released their dreamy smooth pop single “love is so hard!” last Valentine’s Day, so exactly one year later, they’re back with the debut of their music video for the slightly poppier “Give It Up.”
Directed by Brad Michael Wong, the vivid colors of light blues and pinks, dark shadows and lyrics that find Owens crooning, “So tell me, what do I have to do / to get your attention, honey,” “Give It Up” is a solid debut for the band’s lovesick lyrics and dream pop sounds.
Formed in late 2016, I first heard of The Millennial Club when they debuted their original song at UC Irvine’s Soulstice 2017. For fans of Bombay Bicycle Club, LANY and The 1975, I’m sure they’d find something in the club they’ll love, too.
Watch the video for “Give It Up” below and look out for more releases from The Millennial Club this summer:
