In her song “High School Boys,” electro-pop singer-songwriter Madelin sings about feeling nostalgic for the days of her childhood. Her new video for the synth-heavy Sean McVerry remix of the track capitalizes on that nostalgic feeling. The video, premiering below, looks as though it’s being played on a VHS tape, with creative visuals and various performers making up the content.
Appearing in the video with Madelin are a number of up-and-coming Brooklyn-based drag queens, including West Dakota and 10-year-old Desmond Is Amazing. “We wanted this video to be a collaboration involving and celebrating the artists Jose [Dao, the video’s director] and I know and love here in Brooklyn,” Madelin told Billboard.
