Irish band Picture This announced a week ago on social media that they would be supporting boyband Jonas Brothers on their UK and European tour. The tour set off yesterday, 29/01/2020, starting in Birmingham Arena, and what better way to celebrate than the release of a new music video?
Bringing in the new year with their indie pop sound, Picture This released their new single, ‘Winona Ryder’ on 10/01/2020. The song describes the feeling of falling in love with someone who is not actually a celebrity, but has an air of stardom about them. Lead singer Ryan Hennessy said ” ‘Winona Ryder’ is a celebration of the nervousness and edginess bestowed on you by someone you are in awe of”.
In a light-hearted montage of a high school prom, the video is set in 1995, probably a nod to a big time in Ryder’s career, although sadly the actress does not make an appearance. The video takes us back to the awkwardness of high school, and the feeling that everyone is in an entirely different league. The band are shown to be performing at the prom as couples pair up to dance and have fun. The video gives a whole new meaning to the idea of feeling nervously in awe of someone.
Picture This have 2 studio albums currently out under Republic Records, with their debut going triple-platinum in Ireland, and have received 170 million total streams. The ‘Winona Ryder’ music video has already reach 1 million Spotify streams, with YouTube counting the video views at just over 17,000. The band are excited to be joining the Jonas Brothers, and had a successful first show. Although it has not yet been announced, it is likely that a third album will follow the single.
The Jonas Brothers tour is for their 5th studio album ‘Happiness Begins’, the first to be released since they reunited in 2019. Last year, the band took off on their North America and Mexico tour dates, which ran from August to December. Picture This are not the only special guests; they will be joined by Jordan McGraw, American pop artist.
