Two Friends Kick It Old School in 'Bandaid' Exclusive


Los Angeles duo Two Friends are making the most their golden years in the video for their latest single "Bandaid," premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Aug. 14).

The visual takes the song's desperate search for a rebound romance to a new level that required some deep commitments from the pair, composed Matt Halper and Eli Sones. According to the group, the idea came about during a conversation with director Justin Pagano, who also directed the "Just A Kid" video earlier this year, in which they asked themselves, "What is the most absurd way we can demonstrate this situation?"

The answer came in the form two geriatric love interests hitting the town in the prime their lives. Though the original plan was to stay completely true to the concept with two age-appropriate leads, the dance floor centerpiece proved to be an obstacle that only Halper and Sones could overcome.  

"Someone basically said, 'Hey, why don't you guys do it?' — and immediately we were very down," the duo tells Billboard. "This was definitely the most insane video we've ever filmed. We each were in makeup chairs for 3-4 hours and had to work with a choreographer which were both definitely firsts."

Though the young production team could not be distanced any further from their octogenarian counterparts, their longevity has seemed more secure than when they're getting down with their granny selves. 

Catch Two Friends this Sunday (Aug. 19) at Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival in Wantagh, NY along with performances by Halsey, Rae Sremmurd and many more. Tickets are available here.
