Electro-pop trio, LANY, have released their newest music video and we're pretty sure we can all relate it back to a moment in our own lives. It's for their track, "Where The Hell Are My Friends" and it's stars LANY's singer/keyboardist/guitarist, Paul Klein, and his feelings of being disconnected with everyone around him. It's about that feeling you get when you walk into a party/bar/gathering and you're a little out-of-place and alone, so you wander around - possibly looking for a recognizable or welcoming face - until you stop and ask yourself, "Where the hell are my friends?"
The video shows Klein, dressed in all-white, awkwardly navigating his way through a pretty hip party and while asking himself, "Am I starting to hate California? / Why am I in LA? / Forty-million in California / No one cares if I stay." The video glows in hues of red and blue, alternating between the two colors. During the red scenes, Klein is frozen as the rest of the party dances and moves around him, while in the blue scenes, everyone is motionless around Klein. Towards the end of the video, strobes flash as everyone is brought together to dance to the electro-pop track until Klein suddenly appears in an empty room: friendless again. Quite the emotional rollercoaster.
