Arthur Buck—the logically named combination of former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur—have released their second new song, a feel-good blues-pop number titled “Are You Electrified?” More importantly, they had a good time filming the music video: “The best part about making this video for me was riding around, listening to Peter’s playlist of obscure garage rock, overlooked Prince gems and later day Bowie tracks,” Arthur told Rolling Stone. Having a good time is very important to Arthur Buck, as befits a duo who’ve said they met up while hanging out in Mexico and initially wrote their songs in just a few hours.
Watch the new video for “Are You Electrified?” below. The song appears on Arthur Buck’s forthcoming self-titled album, out June 15 from New West Records; tour dates are forthcoming.
