Jimmy Brown - 19th Feb 2013

Taken from their album Twistification, The Last Royals team up with Michael Lawrence for this unusual take on a night out with mates.

A middle-aged woman wakes up, washes her face and is suddenly transformed into her much younger, youthful self - then hits the town. Michael explains the ideas behind the promo:

"When I first heard the track, I was walking down the street in Brooklyn, and there was a group of 50-something year old women wearing pleather, laughing loudly and drunken, stumbling into a bar. I could only imagine that the last thirty years of their life had been spent like this. They woke up, realized they were probably too old to be doing this, and chose to do the same thing again.

"How will all of the hipsters age Will they be drinking on roofs and crashing parties still Will they be following their favorite buzz-band of 2009 in 2039 What will the flashbacks be like This film is for all of the die-hards, the moms and dads who have partying down pat".
