Ant Saunders – “Yellow Hearts” music video
“A lot of people think it’s a love song, and it’s really not. It’s about a girl who was interested at first, but over time I couldn’t tell anymore. Whenever I would give her a compliment, she’d respond with yellow hearts. I looked it up, and they stand for friendship but since not everybody goes by those meanings, the fact that I wasn’t sure became really stressful.” – Ant Saunders
The 16mm filmed audiovisual, shot in Ant Saunders’s hometown, features Saunders and his real-life friends. The video finds them spending time together and walking around their neighborhood. Later, viewers get a peek at their usual hangout spot on the train tracks.
Also, several scenes take place inside Saunders’s childhood home, as well as a classroom in his former high school where he wrote “Yellow Hearts”.
‘Yellow Hearts’ contains a relatable storyline, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with alternative-R&B and urban-pop elements.
“I want to emphasize do it yourself. I want to inspire the outcasts, the introverts and show them that they can do anything.” – Ant Saunders
Ant Saunders is a name you should remember and an exciting new artist to watch. His musical influences include Frank Ocean, Daniel Caesar, Tyler the Creator, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, and John Mayer.
On the day of his high school graduation, Saunders released the laid-back R&B-influenced pop track. A full “do-it-yourself” effort, he wrote, recorded, and produced “Yellow Hearts”. Also, he designed the artwork using Microsoft Paint and used TikTok to ask friends to share the track.
Shortly afterward, two million TikTok videos were created in response. Since then, “Yellow Hearts” has become a viral sensation, with over 75 million streams and charting on the Billboard Hot 100.
