The Learning to Swim gets a sunny visual.

October 05, 2017

As a New York City summer turns into fall, there's that last magic breeze in the air — whether that comes from the seashore or the subway train, it's definitely all around. Boston-raised, New York artist snny manages to capture that feeling in the video for his pleasantly moody track "Young Boy." In the clip, which is premiering on The FADER today, snny hangs around with his friends for that last bit of seasonal fun. Plenty of gorgeous people come along for the ride, too.


In an email to The FADER, snny explained the song and video's very organic origins. "I didn’t really know what I was making until after I made it," he said. "I wanted “Young Boy” to be the centerpiece, the mission statement/thesis for the EP. I just knew the emotion I wanted to evoke and the elements I needed to use. Learning to Swim is the sound of life crashing into itself. It’s the evolution of a previous place thats been shaped and molded by experience and the currents in which it lives. I’m super happy we were able to translate my motif visually, and capture that emotion in the video. “
