The Brooklyn Band To Watch Friends now has a video for the catchy-as-hell bubblefunk single “I’m His Girl,” and I’m not dissing at all when I call it Kreayshawn-esque. The whole thing, with its fashionably retro camerawork and its energetic portrayal of too-cool New York street life, works as a sort of East Coast take on Kreayshawn’s (still great!) “Gucci Gucci” video. Friends leader Samantha Urbani co-directs alongside Aurora Halal. Watch it below.
“I’m His Girl” is out on 7” and on digital download 10/31 via Lucky Numbers. And unsurprisingly enough, Friends will be all over NYC this week for CMJ. Here’s a list of their CMJ shows:
