Just a month after releasing their first free download, 'Take Me Tonight' as a sneak peek to their upcoming Crime Novela EP, the LA based duo, He Met Her have pulled together a video for their first official single, 'Control.'
In the US, MTV’s Buzzworthy and the Logo Channel have quickly picked up the video to premiere this week. MTV notes, 'In the video for "Control" by He Met Her, no surface is safe from the L.A.-based disco-pop duo's super-fierce sexiness.'
The track has been embraced at radio as well, debuting its first week as the #4 most added on the RPM charts.
The video features the stunning male female duo of Mowgli Moon and Rocky Chance in certain compromising positions; a testament to their risqué personalities and experimental lifestyle they are quickly becoming known for.
When asked about the song and video, it is clear that He Met Her went into both the recording studio and video shoot with specific intentions that ended up exceeding even their own expectations:
"The song was a dream to make. We wanted it all to feel a bit French Riviera, fun in the sun & pure full liberation. This all in contrast with the simple word CONTROL was where the idea for the video came in.
"There was this Bonnie & Clyde-esque flirty feel that we were trying to revive with the fervent effect of two people apprehensively enamoured with each other. We filmed through the night at a rundown charming hotel in the north San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles.
"The day turning into night into day again was an eerie & pleasing event! We are super excited to share the video with everyone!"
With an already burgeoning West Coast fan base, ever expanding by the power of critical support from tastemaker blogs, He Met Her are being welcomed as a refreshing blend of unabashed pop and unsolicited cool.
"We want our songs to be songs to feel good to, get free with and vibe out to. We express ourselves by allowing every song to be inspired by something classic we enjoy & mixing it with that future fun & experimental spin."
