This is an English boy band called The Wanted.

Here they are singing their broken hearts out in a decayed, dilapidated warehouse.  A place that time has forgotten as it slowly crumbles to dust.  By putting these five alabaster skinned young lads brimming with youthful vitality IN the warehouse, the video becomes a metaphor for rebirth, like a single lotus rising from the pile of dung.  Life from death. Boys who defy mortality and will protect you, young lady, from your own death.

Note:  Come for the decay, stay for the insanely awkward sparkler flare dance at the end.
