PDA is all around!
You know how when you're feeling lonely and sad about how life and love has turned out and everywhere you look people are PDA-ing on public transport and stuff? I have been there and when I'm there—"there" being the pits of dispair—I feel like shouting: "NO TOUCHING!" just like the prison guards on Arrested Development. Well if this mindset is familiar, or you are in fact groping for a rope ladder out of said Pit of Charred Hearts, then it's best that you don't watch this video. Unless you're a masochist.
That being said: PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER. This is a cute video full of cute, real life couples, doing cute things. Like strolling, spooning, nuzzling, hand holding, gazing, shopping for carpets, and jogging. Jogging? Ugh, that's not cute.
"The One" by Wolf Colony (not to be confused with Wolf Parade, Wolf Gang, Wolf People, Wolf Eyes, Wolfmother, or Patrick Wolf) is a genuinely lovely cut of DIY bedroom pop that calls mind the plush 80s melodies of Baby Alpaca or the crooner cool of Josef Salvat. Nice 80s synths. The NYC-based duo ("Wolf" plus producer Neal Sarin) call their music "emotional electronica" which pretty much sums it up.
"I wanted the video to be all inclusive and universal," explained Wolf Colony of the video. "It was a beautiful experience getting to know these couples and seeing how they interact with each other. I'm also a big fan of Humans of New York and that sparked the initial idea of 'Couples of New York.'"
Wolf Colony's album, Unmasked, will be released on 3.3. "The One" is out now.
