Two Friends Premieres New Music Video for “Bandaid”
- Los Angeles-based DJ duo Two Friends dropped a new music video for “Bandaid” directed by Justin Pagano.
The video was premiered exclusively on Billboard.
The song was released on June 22nd following previous single "Just A Kid" with Kevin Writer. Justin Pagano directed the music video for previous song, as well.
The track features soft guitar chords, light percussion, and indie-pop vocals.
The duo said of the song;
“The song is about when you get together with someone just so you can get over the last person you were with- and you know it’s not gonna last, it’s just sort of a bandaid to help you heal. In hindsight, this may have been subliminally inspired by what Susie & Sally did to us in fifth grade, so we had to rebound with Sami and Sophie. We’re super excited to finally share it with all the homies!”
- The duo stated about the video in a statement;
"This whole concept for the Bandaid music video started out as a joke during a FaceTime chat between us and the director Justin Pagano. We took the original meaning of the song-- which is kind of about when you find someone new solely for the sake of getting over the last person, with no intentions of anything serious-- and basically thought "What is the most absurd way we can demonstrate this situation?". We came up with the idea of a grandma that all the guys would chase, even though she isn't looking for anything serious. At first we were trying to cast older ladies but the dancing scenes just weren't feasible, so someone basically said "Hey why don't you guys do it?"- and immediately we were very down haha. This was definitely the most insane video we've ever filmed. We each were in makeup chairs for 3-4 hours and had to work with a choreographer which were both definitely firsts. Super super stoked how it turned out and we're excited to send it out into the world."
Two Friends is composed of Eli Sones and Matthew Halper. The duo has released two EPs "You (Me)" (2013) and "Out Of Love" (2017).
Recently, the duo created remix for Kanye Wests "Touch The Sky".
The duo is currently touring in the US. Also they will perform Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in Wantagh, NY along with performances by Halsey, Rae Sremmurd and many more on August 19th.
