Watch Foster The People’s ’80s-Inspired Video for ‘Coming of Age’


Foster The People are taking a trip down memory lane in their newest music video for, “Coming of Age.”

From young love to pep rally mascots, the 1980s-esque video takes viewers through the trials and tribulations of a high school student using retro-looking film and nostalgic clips.

“We talked about on this record working with film more and working with classic photography and using California as a backdrop to everything that we were doing,” lead singer Mark Foster tells MTV in a behind-the-scenes interview.

“Coming of Age” is the first single off the band’s upcoming album, Supermodel. However, this video is not the first music video for the song. The sentimental track was also featured in a video that the band released earlier this year, a time-lapse of a mural being painted across a building in Los Angeles that mirrored the Supermodel cover art.
