Chris Milam shares video for ‘Kids These Days’ and details US tour dates

Memphis singer and songwriter Chris Milam has shared a video for his song “Kids These Days.”

The clip for the title track of his new album sees Milam take to the road to perform for a seemingly indifferent audience, images from his life flashing across the screen like poignant memories returning from a dim and distant past.

Beginning with just guitar and Milam’s plaintive, aching vocal, “Kids These Days” soon builds to a cathartic roar, replete with gripping and propulsive instrumentation. As Milam himself says of the track, “Kids These Days” aren’t kids anymore:

“I’ve read about my generation growing up for a long time. But we’re here — we’re in our twenties and thirties. And I know a lot of folks who, despite hard work and good intentions, aren’t where they thought they’d be. Maybe they’re even starting over. I hope that, by telling my story, other people see theirs in it.”

Directed by Ben Siler & Chris Milam, edited by Ben Siler and with cinematography by Andrew Trent Fleming, you can check out the video below.
