Ever wonder what it would be like to meet a mermaid? Well, wonder no more — local band the French Cassettes have captured the encounter in their new video for “Radley,” off their EP Summer Darlings.
The video is charming and tender, probably pretty close to what would actually happen if a group of outgoing twentysomethings met a beautiful woman with a flipper: They approach cautiously but excitedly, offering food as a gesture of friendship and eventually cracking open some beers together on the beach.
The song itself is catchy, with the disinterested cool of indie but the tight, head-bobbing bounce of pop. Hit the jump to bob along.
