For the third clip from their forthcoming Manifest! (due June 5 on Fat Possum) Brooklyn art-pop quintet Friends drew inspiration from campy '80s sci-fi movies, casting singer Samantha Urbani as Big Brother in lip gloss. The Hiro Murai-directed clip for album cut "Mind Control" is packed with special effects — a swirling kaleidoscope of limbs, zombie TV anchors, and some surveillance cams in snazzy suits — and saves one of its best trick for last as Urbani's floating mouth slurps up some slovenly couch potato’s eyeballs.
