I Predict A Riot: The Tough Alliance "First Class Riot"


The Tough Alliance "First Class Riot" (Hi-Res)

dir. by Marcus Soderlund

Another great pop band from Sweden set to take over the States this summer. The video for single "First Class Riot" is a breezy affair, alternating between mating dolphins and the duo performing under the sea. The shimmering lights, which flicker against the water and the walls of the room, match the dreamy feel of the big drums and steely guitars. And even as the video lacks variation, it keeps our attention by focusing on the energetic performance of the band - which in turn emphasizes the quality of the song. Watch out for these guys.
