The comment I posted on YouTube

"Looks like fun! Can't wait to hear the whole track and see the video Smile
I'm glad to see you all exploring new creativity and using your talent.
I think the new album is going to be refreshing, from what I have heard of the variety of styles of tracks so far. I think a recent article I read summed it up
(translation from German article)
"On the other hand, the new style and a bold move, which clearly shows that they are no longer just the teen phenomenon from Magdeburg but serious musicians." Its exciting and I can't wait to hear everything you've been working on!"

I'm not sure I can add to that Smile

Published on 23 Sep 2014
Music video by Tokio Hotel performing Girl Got A Gun. (C) 2014

This is the censored version which was uploaded to TokioHotelVevo, the uncensored version was to be seen on http://www.kmoyes.com/ the directors webpage or on his vimeo http://vimeo.com/106650363 but is now password protected.

My thoughts are that I love the music, I love the video. It has everything - its fun, its colourful, I've been saying for ages, after seeing the stills and screencaps, that it reminded me of Andy Warhol prints with the neon colours. I love the humour  - there are so many details in it that it needs watching several times to pick them all up. 
I love the story line and I feel it has the bounce, musicality and beat to the track that I have grown to associate with Tokio Hotel music. I think its a very strong track. Well done! Smile

I've had the chance now to watch the video and hear the track quite a few times and the track is a real "earworm" that I can't get out of my head.. Its unusual for me to actually comment on YouTube and this is prompted me to post twice!

these are my second comments

"Three strong female characters, one of whom is dumped by letter (text) so she gathers her friends to get revenge on the guy doing the dumping.. 
It seems like it has lots of symbolism in the video, (given the director Kris Moyes style that should probably have been anticipated) It seems to have lots of layers - apart from the obvious ones of who do the "girls" represent? who does the "blue sex monster" represent? Will we get answers in the next THTV episode? Wink ..who knows Smile  
Music works best when its open to interpretation I feel .. Tokio Hotel music and lyrics have always been open to personal interpretation, this is no different.  The guys themselves have said that their new music is 100% Tokio Hotel and that they are proud to be sharing it. Personally, I'm delighted.
The "Girl Got A Gun" song itself has lyrics that aren't necessarily as simple as they seem at first hearing in my view. Its a strong dance track with a great beat that people can enjoy and a fun video that's colourful and encourages thought and discussion. 
Its a pre release track, one of three and to me it shows that the guys have not lost their sense of fun or their talent for making intriguing music and thought provoking lyrics that are best not taken at face value! Smile 
Next up "Love Who Loves You Back", as the single.. and then the full Kings of Suburbia album! It's exciting times.. and I can't wait! Smile"
