UK Artist YUNGBLUD Shares Video for “Polygraph Eyes” 

North American Tour Includes Two Canadians Dates Beginning March 15 in Toronto at The Danforth Music Hall

14 March 2018 (Toronto, ON) – Today, UK recording artist YUNGBLUD shares the video for “Polygraph Eyes”. Watch it HERE. The song is from his self-titled debut EP available now via Locomotion/Geffen Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Listen to YUNGBLUD HERE.

Self-directed by YUNGBLUD (otherwise known as Dominic Harrison), the video for “Polygraph Eyes” offers Harrison’s commentary on consent: “She slurs when she speaks / But you hear what you want when she can’t even talk”. Commenting on the lyrics, YUNGBLUD says, “We’ve been brought up in a society where the lad mentality has just been accepted, and I think that’s something that needs to be talked about.”

As an artist and songwriter, YUNGBLUD lives to stir up the raw energy of rebellion. On his self-titled debut EP, the 19-year-old Northern England native confronts everything from gentrification to disenfranchisement to addiction, turning each track into an infectious anthem that packs endless cathartic power.

With his frenetic take on alt-pop equally inspired by punk, hip-hop, and UK garage, YUNGBLUD makes brilliant use of his breakneck flow and tongue-in-cheek attitude, delivering pointed lyrics without ever getting heavy-handed. “I want my music to always have a message, but I don’t want to preach to anybody,” says YUNGBLUD. “When people preach to me, I completely switch off—like, ‘Why are you trying to tell me to do?’ This music’s just an outburst of emotion and anger and everything else going on in my head.”

Catch YUNGBLUD’s upcoming performance on Late Night with Seth Myers on March 22.
