Directed by Samantha Urbani of Friends + Aurora Halal (whose work has been featured a lot around here lately). Friends' irresistibly catchy I'm His Girl single -- which, incidentally, vaguely recalls one of the best Cat Power songs, albeit with a considerably dirtier bassline -- is out digitally and on 7" October 31 on Lucky Number. Catch the band this week (starting tonight) at CMJ, dates after the jump.
