    San Francisco pop outfit The Morning Benders have scored an absolute winner in the release of their sophomore album, Big Echo. With it, the band have the buzz a'buzzin', zipping every which way 'round the interwebs, including our home here at Baeble. Now the band have prepared their first proper video for a song from that record, and it's as dewy (well, sort of...) as the Bender's sunny side up pedigree. Directed by Aaron Brown and Ben Chappell of Focus Creeps, "Promises" pairs a couple of cuties going all Bonnie and Clyde to a variety of lyrics about wasted youth ("I can't help thinking we grew up way too fast").

    Big Echo is out now on Rough Trade. Like the buzz we spoke of, the band is currently tearing around the country on a big 'ole tour.
