The Vamps‘ Connor Ball never looked so happy while sitting in a pint-sized car during the Stand Up To Cancer with YouTube event in London, England on Saturday (October 15).
Joined by bandmates Brad Simpson, James McVey, and Tristan Evans at the event, which started back in September with YouTube pledging 1000 hours of fundraising for cancer related programs through Stand Up 2 Cancer.
Speaking with Notion mag earlier, the guys dished about the upcoming video.
“…In the next couple of weeks. I think we’ve got a rough idea of what the video is going to be like,” the group shared, adding, “We want the video to compliment and represent the track really well and all feel like one cohesive body of work.”
“‘All Night’ revolves around the notion of appreciating someone. It’s the ecstasy feeling of reassurance knowing someone is there for you and acknowledging how much they’ve helped you, too,” Brad shared about the track.
He added about the collaboration with Matoma, “We really wanted to try something slightly different and new for The Vamps, and Matoma was the perfect person to do this with. Luckily for us, he heard the demo and wanted to get involved.”
“We’re not trying to make a dance album but it’s a bit more dance-y than anything we’ve done before,” James shared with Notion mag. “It’s quite atmospheric. We’ve tried to blend in a dance drop with a singer- songwriter verses so it’s much more like a blend of genre. It’s about the nostalgia of spending time with a girl and you’re up and you can’t sleep and you wish that you were with her.”
Brad added, “In the verses especially it goes more in depth in terms of speaking about someone who had essentially pulled you back from a bit of a rubbish place. You get all of that depth in the verse which is nice. Then the chorus is this big sing-along; it almost sounds like these kids singing. Hopefully people like it.”
“Whoever you are and whatever you’re doing, there’s always going to be somebody standing by ready to say something negative. Personally, I don’t take the time to engage with it,” Louisa shared with the mag about haters.
She added, “People can say what they like, at the end of the day it’s their radio that’ll be playing my songs.”
