For his “Friends Of Mine” video Ben Browning rewinds time to catch up with some old friends. Directed by NY-based filmmakers Trouble Hands, the video was shot in a six-room, 500-square-foot 1920s beach bungalow. As the camera spins a cast of characters cycle through their daily routines, repeating the same acts, again and again—preparing a meal, stacking books, pacing back and forth on the phone (a fitting cameo from Alex Karpovsky of Girls)—like a snagged needle in a locked groove. Ben watches on as things get surreal, walking through the rooms of the house, as if recreating a modern take on “It’s A Wonderful Life” (by way of share-house classic "Dogs In Space”). Repetitive sure, but even in such tight quarters these Friends don’t cramp your style.

Cut Copy bassist Ben Browning issued his debut solo full-length, Turns, earlier this month. Now, he's given one of the new songs the visual treatment by rolling out of a clip for "Friends of Mine."

In the video for this twinkling synth-pop, we see Browning looking impassive as the camera spins around a cramped house in which some friends go about their daily routine. It's cinematically shot, and Browning takes some photos with a disposable camera (remember those?) before breaking the routine and leaving the house.

It was directed by Trouble Hands. 

Turns is out on Yellow Year Records.
