Friends Electric - Wall Of Arms (new video!)

Last week, I dished out Friends Electric's catchy new tune, Wall Of Arms, with the promise that when they released the video for the track, I'd write something in a more proper fashion regarding the song. Well, beasts, here we are with the newly unveiled visuals...so get ready to read. Or not. Your choice. Either way, the clip is here and the clip is rad.



Wall Of Arms sees a proper release via Self Raising Records on June 14 (pre-order here). Friends Electric have quickly, and rightfully so, made a name for themselves in a fickle blog-world. After songs like Music For the People and Give Me Chills entered our playlistings earlier this year, they've kept the buzz aplenty with big bangin' remixes for the likes of Penguin Prison, Ellie Goulding and Kelis.


The new single is a steady slice of power-pop with twinkling splashes and a one-two one-two one-two drumming sequence that just begs listeners to start dancing.


As for the video? It's neat, casual and a bit Four Rooms' poster vibey, eh? I dig it. And boys in black-and-white striped shirts...oh, that gets me every time. So keep that up lads!

Beginning next week, the two bands will hit the States on a 10-city tour, which covers everything from Texas straight to our Eastern shores.



Gearing up for their sophomore album, Fortress (July 27), Miniature Tigers hit the road to preview the super slices of awesome held within the disc.
