Friends – I’m His Girl

January 16, 2012

Some might be tempted to write-off Friends’ campy pastiche as sardonic, but to do so would be to miss the point–Friends is a band that is about playing with stock musical tropes rather than a band that’s poking fun at something. Sure, the slide-and-pop baseline in “I’m His Girl” is almost hilariously funky and this video seems to be mocking a certain time and place, but you never get the sense that Friends takes themselves too seriously. It’s that carefree confidence combined with Samantha Urbani’s playful but sexy vocals that make this track more than just a catchy tune, but a display of a young Brooklyn band on the rise.
