Port Royal are taking a chance on romance, diving into the world of speed dating in their flirtatious, upbeat new music video for their latest summery rock-pop jam Don’t You Forget About Me.

Port Royal may be out on their biggest tour yet but they aren’t letting that stop them from finding love in the new music video for their latest single Don’t You Forget About Me.

This rock quartet are taking their chances, joining a speed dating party to help find their true loves and letting their single set the perfect ambiance for romance to flourish.

“The themes and aesthetic of the song were taken to a whole new level in this clip and I think it conveys a beautiful vision of positivity and romance,” said lead vocalist Lawson Doyle.

Working once again with their all time favourite director Julian Squared, the band are thankful for having such an amazing team that created this ‘match made in heaven’ between the track and visuals.

“The incredible team we had behind the Don’t You Forget About Me music video meant every facet was treated with the upmost care and time. From Ashleigh in the art department to Sophie in the makeup, assistant director Sisi Stringer and Julian Squared’s ability to create a vision was quite incredible,” said Doyle.

Blending their signature rock and roll sound with a splash of summery pop, their team captured this video to overflow with optimism, acceptance, love and good times all around.

“There’s nothing more pleasurable than working alongside people who are working so hard for a dream both so similar and so complementary to our own. And it was truly just an honour to see them work with such skill at this thing they love,” said bass guitarist Chase Brodie.

United by a shared love of the attitude, aesthetic, and music of classic rock and roll culture, Brisbane’s Port Royal have been making waves in the local scene since mid-2015. Their mind-melting mix of electric live performances and blend of iconic 70’s rock influences complemented by contemporary and relatable lyrics makes for an unmistakably catchy sound that will have you singing along with every chorus. Heading into 2019, the band will release their latest single Don’t You Forget About Me and plan to embark on their biggest national tour to date. The song is a summer indie pop tune and somewhat signifies diversity from their traditional song writing roots.
