5SOS Luke Hemmings' new music video
The 24-year-old crooner had dropped the visualizer of the song ‘Starting Line’ a week ago but he now made his fans proud with a brand new video for the song sending his listeners into a tizzy. In the music video, the Australian heartthrob can be seen walking, jumping, and running across the city as he sings his heart out. Hemmings looks dapper in a red shirt with vest while rocking a sturdy pair of converse.
Talking about the lyrics, he begins the emotional song with, “In and out of focus, Moments that I keep/ Something for the pain, And something so I sleep/ Won’t you comfort me?, Warm the air that I breathe. He then slips into the chorus with, “I wake up every morning with the years ticking by/ I’m missing all these memories, maybe they were never mine/ I feel the walls are closing, I’m running out of the time/ I think I missed the gun at the starting line.” Speaking of his debut solo single, Hemmings in a statement, said, “Starting Line’ discusses missing various memories. You’re reflecting on your youth and all of the madness and craziness. It’s like you’re forgetting so many pieces of your life – not from vices or anything – but from the sheer volume.” He continued, “I had to figure out how to fill a lot of gaps for myself in a positive way. It’s the human condition to change everything up after so long”, as reported by NME.
