GIRLFRIENDS & BOYFRIENDS "A Flower" (July 29th, 2014; MANIMAL)
Girlfriends and Boyfriends have been toiling away in the dark depths of the Vancouver music scene for the past few years now, emerging occasionally for the odd North American tour and single. Now, with their first-ever full-length planned for release later this year through Manimal Vinyl, the '80s-geared band are sharing their video for leadoff single "A Flower."
The clip is interspersed with shots of the three-piece walking through a series of rainy-day Vancouver streets while simultaneously telling the tale of a young and creative post-punk couple's inability to stay together. Carrying on in the band's tradition of crafting shameless '80s pop rock, expect to hear a lot of synthesizers, palm-muted riffing and Peter Hook-esque bass interplay throughout the video's three-minute runtime. -- Exclaim!
