Real Friends

Illinois band Real Friends goes back in time for their nostalgic new video "Sixteen," recalling a moment when they might have been a little lonelier than their band name would suggest. The evocative single is just one of the pop-punk anthems that brought their 2014 debut Maybe This Place Is The Same, And We're Just Changing critical acclaim.

"This song is one of our favorites from the album," bassist Kyle Fasel tells Billboard. "Max Moore, who directed the video, was really able to capture the song’s emotion with this music video. And it’s filmed in a bowling alley so that’s pretty sick.”
