Video premiere – Buffalo, New York’s Mutual Friends unveil ‘Instant Gratification’


Hailing from Buffalo, New York, Mutual Friends are set to release an EP called ‘Instant Gratification‘ on Bandcamp and we’re honoured to be hosting the video premiere here on Spectral Nights.

An emo four-piece who have a dreamy outlook, the four-minute song is very fantastical and seems to combine elements of Beach House or Mercury Rev’s otherworldliness with Into It. Over It.’s more intricate guitar work. There’s also a touch of Death Cab for Cutie as Kevin Scoma, the band’s frontman, pleas that he’s ‘never been one to need instant gratification’.

The video, with its high production values, is serenely beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time. Just wait until you see that melancholic last shot.
