Grab your friends do something regrettable today!
My initial reaction was—Eh! It's like British people doing The Strokes on Aderall. Not that there's anything wrong with that! But in fact Made Violent hail from Buffalo, NY, they have one EP to their name, and they're about to hit the road with Wolf Alice and Drenge, so they keep rather good company. Musically "Wasted Days" is rambunctious, city gritty rock 'n' roll that'll make you wanna grab your buddies and ride your bikes to the nearest bar where you'll spend the next seven and half hours propping it up. You may end up in bed with your best friend and wake up wondering what the hell? Then you'll high five, get back on your bike, and go about your day. Apparently the song is about "losing everything," but this song sounds so much more upbeat than that overriding sentiment.
Below is their video for said song—a dizzying, kaleidoscopic crystal ball of a video that sees the trio gallivanting around NYC, the park, apartment rooftops, Times Square, wherever, and it's all over in under three minutes. Wham bam, just how we like it.
