Local rockers RFA put out another live video, this time for the heartache of “Suzie Lee” — sure, it’s another bang-draped band head-banging to a mid-naughty callback, but we love it.
Shot by the folks at Out Of Town Films in the same living room as their video for “Teenage Love Song,” the four piece hooks on the titular name, growling for her to never forget our narrator. Layered with manic, Fratellis-like drum work and fun-ass riffs gives the track 2006-style radio power, while the duel Telecasters add that bit of early-Bombay Bicycle Club swagger.
The track fits just as well in a basement as it would in the tent at Leeds, fitting anthemic hooks and hip-twisting rhythms, creating an energy I sure thought was lost. I’m glad to be proven wrong again.
