    Lyrics:
    Turn the earth, I need the spring to colorgrade everything
    Things will change for good or bad
    And you can loose things you never had
    Control for instance or the sun in a billion years

    I'm a black hole eating optimism
    I'm a black swan born white
    I'm a depression still under construction
    But you can make it all, yeah you can make it all
    Right tonight

    On a line between hope and fear
    And I can see them both from here
    Don't say no, I won't go far
    With stubbornness as a balance bar

    I'm a black hole eating optimism
    I'm a black swan born white
    I'm a depression still under construction
    But you can make it all, yeah you can make it all
    Right tonight

    Lyrics:
    Are we running? No let’s leave this bar
    Will you tell me. If we start to
    Is it empty? The box called tonight
    No we still got Mountains to do
    Mountains to chew

    Be my. My Yoko Ono
    I need someone to hold my hand
    Be my. My Yoko Ono
    For you I’ll break up my band

    Can we make it? I don’t know let’s try
    If we don’t try. We’ll never know
    Are you hungry? I’m happy with you
    Are you happy. With yogurt too?

    Be my. My Yoko Ono
    I need someone to hold my hand
    Be my. My Yoko Ono
    For you I’ll break up my band

    Let’s go Shanghai high. Let’s go Shanghai high
    Build until we reach the sky. Let’s go Shanghai high

    Be my. My Yoko Ono
    For you I’ll break up my band
    Be my. My Yoko Ono
    I need someone to hold my hand
    Be my. My Yoko Ono
    For you I’ll break up my band

    Let’s go Shanghai high. Let’s go Shanghai high
    Build until we reach the sky. Let’s go Shanghai high

    Filmed and edited by Diana Kunst
    Starring Cosmo MacDonald

    The video for “A Flash In the Forest”, one of the key songs on Reptile Youth’ debut album is the newest episode in the ongoing video project.

    The band asked 10 different directors to produce music videos for each of the 10 songs on their debut album “Reptile Youth” which was released in autumn last year.

    In contrast to “Be My Yoko Ono”, which premiered in December 2012, the new video reflects yet another approach to interpret a Reptile Youth song. While the song deals with anger, frustration, uprise and rebellion, the video transforms the song’s vibe into a sensitive portrait of a young man in a crisis.

    Madrid based photography- and video-artist Diana Kunst invited up- and coming star-model Cosmo MacDonald for this impressive piece. Diana Kunst is a much in demand visual artist and shot a number of heavy weight fashion commercials, “but it’s in her personal work where she lets her immense talents really run wild with a series of quietly confrontational works which will get under your skin.”, as Rob Alderson wrote on It’s Nice That. “She is brilliant at creating a certain kind of atmosphere, a visual discombobulation. There’s a seam of sexuality running throughout but it’s rarely a straightforward kind (is sexuality ever straightforward?) with slightly dark, slightly twisted overtones at play and you often feel plunged into a narrative you’re forced to try and work out.”

    Lyrics:
    My brother saw them fighting in the kitchen
    Late one sunday evening
    He was peeking through a hole in the door
    My mother she was furious and screaming
    He explained but she wouldn't believe him
    Good parents never give you more
    Than a flash in the forest

    All we got was a flash in the forest
    (All they got was a flash in the forest)
    All we got was a flash in the forest at night
    (A flash in the forest) 
    All we got was a flash in the forest
    (All they got was a flash in the forest)
    All we got was a flash in the forest at night
    A flash in the forest
    (A flash in the forest) 
    A flash in the forest at night

    These are digits and facts you can believe in
    Says the politician to the television
    There's simply no way this can be wrong
    Now the opposition says he made mistakes and
    That it couldn't be further from the truth man
    It's impossible to see further beyond
    Than a flash in the forest

    We want more than a flash in the forest
    (All we got was a flash in the forest)
    We want more than a flash in the forest at night
    (A flash in the forest)
    We want more than a flash in the forest
    (All we got was a flash in the forest)
    We want more than a flash in the forest at night
    A flash in the forest
    (A flash in the forest)
    A flash in the forest at night

    We want more than a flash in the forest
    (We want more than a flash in the forest)
    We want more than a flash in the forest at night
    (A flash in the forest)
    We want more than a flash in the forest
    (We want more than a flash in the forest)
    We want more than a flash in the forest at night
    A flash in the forest
    (A flash in the forest)
    A flash in the forest at night

2012 has seen Reptile Youth’s hotly anticipated debut album released to the world. Capturing the raucous kinetics of their live shows, the LP is set to stun. The album has been produced in London with star producers Dave M. Allen & Mark Ralph. Allen famously produced legendary bands like The Cure, Sisters of Mercy and Human League, while Ralph sat behind the desk for the Filthy Dukes, remixed Lady Gaga and produced the new Hot Chip album. “Reptile Youth is a riot, a dream and a 21st century fuck you dadaism movement.” Mads Damsgaard.

A stunning debut album released about a year ago, followed by an extensive tour schedule and numerous radio singles, a massive remix album rounding things off from May 2013 onwards, unveiling more, and mostly electronic, variations of the Reptile Youth trademark sound. 

But still this is not the end of the story as Reptile Youth can’t stand keeping all this for themselves. Mads and Esben are starving for reflections of their own world and so they’ve been curious to see what impact their music left on other creatives. 

This attitude in mind they’ve been curating what has been filed under the name of The Reptile Youth Video Project within the last months and asked different video directors to shoot videos for every song from their highly acclaimed debut album. After almost one year in the making we are proud to present The Reptile Youth Video Project now.
