In support of their new album, A Sentimental Education, Luna have unveiled a video for their cover Doug Yule’s “Friends,” directed by Matthew Buzzell. Buzzell is an Assistant Professor of Communications at Augusta University, and with the exception of LA-based cinematographer George Su, his entire production crew was made up of students working on their senior projects. The result is a visual delight, as endearingly genuine as the song itself. Buzzell previously directed the Luna documentary Tell Me Do You Miss Me.
Aquarium Drunkard premiered “Friends,” noting that Luna’s take on the classic “feels natural and lived in with Wareham’s familiar and wistful vocal out front as the group gently sways in stride.”
Last month, Luna released new album A Sentimental Education, as well an EP of instrumentals, A Place of Greater Safety, on Double Feature Records. Prior to release, the band shared their interpretations of Fleetwood Mac’s “One Together,” Mink Deville’s “Let Me Dream If I Want To” and The Cure’s “Fire in Cairo,” complete with a dreamy music video starring Rose McGowan.
