Friendly Fires: Mercury-nominated Brit rockers debut video for 'Kiss of Life'

Posted on

One of my favorite imports from beyond the pond, electro-rockers and newly minted Mercury Prize finalists Friendly Fires, have just the released the video for single “Kiss of Life.”

While I enjoy the song’s light and uplifting melody, what I don’t quite understand is lead singer Ed Macfarlane’s attempt at dancing. Is he showing us how to swim on shore, or paying homage to Shakira in a really British and gangly way? Either way, love the song.

What do you think Music-Mixers? Are you feeling the video? Are Ed’s pelvic thrusts English-sexy, or tropic-awkward? What do you think of FF’s chances for the Mercury?
