Neon Trees - "Sleeping With A Friend" (Music Video Premiere!)
If the 80's influence on their new single "Sleeping With A Friend" wasn't obvious enough, Neon Trees make it even more clear with the premiere of the "out-there" music video of the song. The friends-with-benefits anthem "Sleeping With A Friend" is the first single from the alternative rock band's forthcoming third album "Pop Psychology" (April 22).
"Sleeping With A Friend" is a great little uptempo song, but it's not "Everybody Talks". With the right promotion, though, it may turn into a radio and Hot 100 hit. But it's gonna take a lot of hard work! Hearing "Sleeping With A Friend", and watching its newly-premiered music video, I have to stop for a minute and wonder why their label hasn't sent Neon Trees to try the waters of the British market yet. I have the feeling they would feel really comfortable playing their music there, and that the UK audience will receively them warmly.
In any case, as for the "Sleeping With A Friend" - which premiered on January 24th on VEVO - it's super weird, but cool at the same time. It's colorful, and really has nothing to do with the lyrics...with the exception of the scene shown in the photograph below. It's sort of giving me too illuminati vibes.
