Videos For a Lazy Sunday: The Black and White Years ‘Strange Figurines’

Austin-based five-piece The Black and White Years have shared the video for the title track from their latest release Strange Figurines, out now on Modern Outsider.

“Recently, a close friend of mine told me he wanted advice.  He had fallen in love with a girl who lived with her boyfriend, but she he gave him every indication that she wanted to leave her boyfriend and be with him” explained singer/guitarist Scott Butler in a statement. “She never outright said, “I want you, not him. Kiss me, you fool!”  He wondered whether he should risk their friendship by telling her how he felt.  He never did and she’s still with her boyfriend.  I wrote this song for him.”

Catch band on the following dates;

01/31 – Houston, TX @ Fitzgerald’s

02/08 – Bryan, TX @ Grand Stafford Theater
