Vid O’The Week: The Lulu Raes – Reputation

The word sweet cannot be used anymore literally than in this video. Look at your hands right now and imagine if your fingers were made out of delicious red liquorice, the way they taste on your jellybean lips, the soft bite against your teeth made of teeth lollies, as your wobbly jelly snake arms struggle to hold your gadget as you read this article.

If you’re not delirious yet from the phantom sugar fix, then think of as many positive things you can right now and you’ll soon be overwhelmed – love, happiness, sweetness, colourfulness, dancing, feel good vibes, positivity, sunshine, dreams – this track from The Lulu Raes will be sure to boost their  reputation for making “you feel alive” .

We love Sydney’s energetic indie-pop rockers, The Lulu Raes, as their song Reputation + the equally delicious music video with hit you like a sugary high.

Sydney’s indie pop meets rock n roll band, The Lulu Raes, are back with another stop motion music video for their riveting jangle pop track Reputation –  directed and animated by Neil Goodridge. This is the second single release from the boys and features the lead singer’s fuzzy vocals which carry enough quirky charm and grit to give it that boyish sex appeal. Reputation is highly upbeat, has layers of playful guitar licks and is full of gorgeous and spiffily  motown harmonies – definitely a song you can dance silly to. Lovin’ the retro influences in The Lulu Raes’ loveable sound.

With catchy feel goods songs of Way Life Runs and Reputation behind them, experience working with the acclaimed Sticky Fingers, influences from The Strokes, The Flaming Lips and The Pixies, and now their song Way Life Runs featuring on the winning Tropfest short film, The Lulu Raes are another reason for exciting times in Sydney’s indie pop scene as it continues to prosper.

We may grow old as time passes by as we wait for this band to get the recognition they deserve, but if it’s any consolation at least their music will keep us buzzing to our very end. You’ve done it boys, you’ve won a place in our hearts…again!
