What I love so much about the "Red Balloon" video is how stripped down it is. Although the song itself have more production in it than older material, Never Shout Never has always been raw and fresh, uplifting without being campy. "Red Balloon" in particular is very uplifting. It's the feeling of being free after you've been tied down, like the lonely red balloon.
"Red Balloon" is off Never Shout Never's seventh album Black Cat, which is available on iTunes and Spotify. The band is currently on a US tour with Metro Station, Waterparks, and Jules Vera.
