Blame My Youth (Sean Van Vleet) has dropped his first single “Fantastic,” a perfectly-crafted modern rock banger permeated by seductive pop hooks and sheer audacity. And while Blame My Youth is a name you might not be aware of, chances are you have unknowingly heard in him your headphones, in a store or on a television. As a former principal songwriter in Chicago indie faves Empires, Van Vleet expanded into the world of songwriting and syncs, providing music for major artists, and ads worldwide. Blame My Youth is Van Vleet’s return to the band format, bringing all of the earworm-y grandiosity that permeated his quietly complicated pop gems. “With this song I get to tell the story of my life in about 2 minutes.” Says Van Vleet. “The first lines of the chorus hit my brain one morning like a mainline of coffee, I got instant PMA. Got me out of bed feeling refreshed. Fantastic set the tone for a lot of good days, even if I was feeling bad.”

The video for “Fantastic” was directed by Nathan R. Smith and is a Trainspotting influenced combination of some of Blame My Youth‘s favorite 90’s rock music videos. The story follows Sean through a hungover haze as he makes his way through the city. The song debuted on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation and you can watch the clip here
