It’s time to listen up and learn yourself somthin’. Here comes a valuable life lesson told with an authoritative finger and hip juts. Brooklyn’s Friends funk and jive their way into your shoes on “I’m His Girl”: breathy and all dolled up. And as with all women who claim to know exactly how they feel, the song comes off as vaguely self-deceptive and leaves me highly suspicious of Samantha Urbani’s claim to be “his” honest-to-goodness “girl”. Wouldn’t someone confident in their girl-ness have little to no need to declare it? I could slightly/possibly/maybe/perchance be overanalyzing.

In any case, the co-directed video by Aurora Halal and Friends’ lead singer Samantha Urbani is a dusty gold bracelet of a clip: delightful to discover and pleasing to stare at.
