On his debut solo album Flamingo, Brandon Flowers delivers glitzy, ’80s-style synth pop heavy on themes that reflect his Las Vegas hometown. So it’s no surprise that Flowers’ new video for “Only the Young” (directed by Sophie Muller) is as glitzy and over-the-top as a Cirque du Soleil show, complete with floating acrobats, blazing fires, and laser lights. Meanwhile, Flowers, sporting a tuxedo straight out of Tom Jones’ cedar chest, jerks and struts across the heavily-lit set, evoking David Byrne from the “Once in a Lifetime” video. Check it out below.
