Ever get that special, Friday feeling? You know the one, where nothing seems to be going your way? You try to use the office toilet and the paper is out? You try to make a scan and the machine explodes? You try to talk to your boss, but he's a subhuman imbecile and this place sucks?

Even electronic musicians know that feel, and Modestep's video for “Living For the Weekend” is a documentary of sorts of that very phenomenon. This poor women can't catch a break, but as soon as she clocks out, shit is on like Donkey Kong.

Modestep had a little help in the studio from Zomboy who served as a studio producer during the song's recording process, a move the band shot for as soon as the song's melodic concept struck. “Living For the Weekend” is abrasive, energetic, and loud as all hell.
