Here’s a video for Darkside with a bunch of kids doing dances we don’t know. (link in bio)

The new video definitely matches the upbeat sound of the song, despite it’s contradicting name. The kids do dances in a gym and on a playground, many recognizable from the video game Fortnite. Everyone is wearing red polos, but it’s not clear why, all while the band does what they do best — jam out. 

You can see the full video for “Darkside” below.
