Watch Tired Lion's TV Time Travelling 'Not My Friends' Video


While the song itself (recently featuring in our weekly new music wrap-up) details the therapeutic act of discarding friendships for your own wellbeing, the video for Tired Lion's latest single "Not My Friends" is significantly less insular.

Trawling through a series of nostalgic television show reenactments, the clip features the band inserting themselves into a series of one-point scenes from Friends (obviously), Home Improvement, Seinfeld and others, softening the song's serious tone with the light-hearted pop culture trivia. They even successfully weave the obligatory band performance segment into the narrative, via a Conan O'Brien homage.

The Perth four-piece have also announced a series of national dates in support for the new single, kicking off this week in Melbourne. After which, they'll be heading overseas for an extensive European tour. Full run of dates below.
