Club Drive’s Video “Voyager” Will Teach You To Seize The Day With Kindness

Shoutout to British guitar-pop band Club Drive for using their video “Voyager” to document the daily struggles of a homeless person. Fueling us with streak of staccato chords and bouncing synth pads, Club Drive hits our emotional pressure spots while keeping us in a buoyant trance. “Voyager” gives us a glimpse of a homeless man who is largely ignored by most of the passersby until a girl finally decides to stop and offer him Starbucks. Now, this is not a Starbucks ad (but hey Starbucks, give them a call?), the focus of this video is that someone actually decides to take the time to have a conversation. Influenced by the band’s own encounter while on tour, “Voyager” is a reminder that small actions can shift the tone of someone’s day:

Club Drive sounds familiar because you were probably cranking up your car speakers (before that asshole cut you off) with their single “Spare Time,” which has been added to BBC Radio 1 playlist. Having received wide acclaim for their EP Dangerous and comparisons to other pop rock artists like One Republic, DNCE, and Maroon 5, Club Drive is the type of band that hits your motivational center at the gym, work, or dancefloor. Make sure you go see them live this summer:

7/14-15 – Lovebox Festival (London, UK)

7/27-30 – Standon Calling (Hertfordshire, UK)
