- Animal Years Premieres New Music Video for “Friends”
- Brooklyn-based rock band Animal Years released a new music video for "Friends" directed by Anthony Saladino, who is a bassist of the band. The video was premiered exclusively on Billboard.
In the video, kids dance in the woods together like Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and it reminds you of "Stand by Me". Yes, they are friends.
The song is taken from their latest EP "Far From Home", which was released on September 22, 2017.
About the video, the band told Billboard;
"This video is incredibly dear to us. It was written and directed by our bass player, Anthony Saladino, and we shot it on his family friends' property upstate where he spent a lot of time as a child, which made the video that much more personal. Taking the kids and the crew up there where we all slept in one massive old cabin with no Internet, eating family-style dinners around the same table, staying up late laughing and playing board games, sleeping on air mattresses on the floor in the living room -- it all made for a surreal and intensely special experience. And those five kids carried the weekend in every way."
Animal Years was formed in 2013, consisting of Mike McFadden (Vocals, Guitar), Anthony Spinnato (Drums) and Anthony Saladino (Bass).
The trio released a debut album "Sun Will Rise" in 2014 and live EP "Animal Years on Audiotree Live" in 2016.
Back in May, "Caroline" was released as the first single from the EP "Far From Home".
The band will perform at The Ark in Michigan on January 4, Mod Club Theatre and Peter Players in Canada on January 5-6, respectively.
