Troye Sivan - Wild

05 September Critic Jonni 0 Comments



Before today, I had no idea who Troye Sivan was, but I must've been living under a rock. Thanks to Gay Times and Attitude's facebook statuses, this video popped up on my news feed twice. Now you all know how I love Basshunter's music videos that continued the storyline of him and Aylar Lie, well Troye Sivan is doing the exact same, in three parts. Blue Neighbourhood here we all come.

Troye Sivan, real name Troye Sivan Mellet, is an out gay YouTuber, singer and actor. He's 20 years old, and from Australia. He's very cute, not going to lie. He's got an incredible voice, move out the way Steve Grand, I think I've just found my new favourite gay singer. "Wild" is taken from his most recent EP of the same name.

This is the sort of music video I love to watch. Something that tells a story line. I love the flashbacks, children are so innocent, and I really miss those days, not having to worry about anything, unless you did something bad. Instead the two children don't do anything bad, it's the drunken dad.

I love the emotional piece, at first I thought Troye Sivan was singing whilst resting his head on a pillow, it soon turns out that he's cuddling a guy, who we presume is the other child in the video, is this a reality or some dream? Clearly something personal happened in Blue Neighbourhood, and I can't wait to see where it will go.

There's a few snapshots of the future, a little scene on the beach, at the start, someone dressed in a suit, someone running... Is this something to come in parts 2 and 3? I'm excited for the story to continue. Although Troye Sivan has made me a little jealous, I miss having someone there to care for me, I miss my cuddles and kisses, but most of all I miss having someone else in my life. Although I'm not ready for anything again, not just yet.

Full of emotion, heart-breaking for some, and powerful, this music video isn't shy of anything. Troye Sivan is really paving the way. The emotion reminds me of Steve Grand's "All American Boy". I cannot wait for part two of Blue Neighbourhood.
