Simulated Youth Debuts Vertical Video for “Kill the Messenger”

Phoenix’s own Goth-friendly EDM outfit Simulated Youth has a new video for the track “Kill The Messenger”. Simulated Youth takes inspiration from artists such as Crystal Castles,  Kerosene, Vanished, Good Time, Plague, plus Alice Glass’s solo work, as well as Bjork, Catnapp, The Knife, Aphex Twin, and more.

Previously, we interviewed the mastermind behind the project, Zach, about his song, “Kill The Messenger”, to which he elaborated:

“I decided to call this one Kill the Messenger long before I had any lyrics done. Once it was ready for lyrics, I wrote a version that was more about the typical meaning of the phrase “kill the messenger” which basically means to not take things too seriously or get angry at people just for telling you something you don’t like. However, once I recorded the vocals, I thought it sounded too cliché. I then rewrote the lyrics to take “kill the messenger” literally. The final version of the song, with the word “kill” said no less than 93 times, may sound intense based on the lyric alone. However, I’d challenge anyone after listening to say this is not an extremely danceable and dare I say, “fun” song!”

Simulated Youth has also released a new track “Digital Memories”. Find more info on the track here.
