The Little Kicks – Goodbye Enemies, Hello Friends

Video by Music Team | 02 Dec 2016

Watch the video for Little Kicks' new single Goodbye Enemies, Hello Friends, taken from their new album Shake Off Your Troubles

The straight-to-camera style and monochrome style sits in contrast to the video for lead single You and Someone Like Me, with vocalist Steven Milne stating that the track's narrative called for a simple approach.

Milne says: "It was important that the sense of fun heard in the music was reflected in the video – ultimately we agreed that the best thing for the song would be that we keep things pretty simple and make it a contrast to the last video.”

Goodbye Enemies... is the second single from the Aberdeen four-piece's new album Shake Off Your Troubles, set for release next March. The track centres on "appreciating what you have," according to Milne. "The overall sentiment is that things are going to be okay. This is echoed and in line with the title of our new record.

"There is a totally intentional Beatles vibe which you could say comes largely due to the name-check (and drum fill) in the last verse but I feel their influence was a natural reference point in the studio that suited the song."

Goodbye Enemies, Hello Friends is out now; Shake Off Your Troubles is due for release on 3 Mar 2017 via Loosen Up Records
