Allah-las drop “Famous Phone Figure” video

by Micaela Stanley


The track comes off the group's highly anticipated album, Calico Review, to be released September 9.

The Allah-las are a reflection of their melancholic Californian lifestyle. The band, consisting of members Pedrum Siadatian (vocals/lead guitar), Miles Michaud (vocals/rhythm guitar), Matthew Correia (vocals/drum), and Spencer Dunham (vocals/bass), formed in 2008 in Los Angeles and have since turned the so-cal attitude into their own personal projection of freedom, girls, and glory days spent by the shore.

Their new video for Famous Phone Figure depicts this same far-away feeling as seductive harmonies play while various women are shown largely hidden by close-ups and shadows; emphasizing the anonymity of who they are and the romance of who they may be. Dunham says "The song is a tongue and cheek look at internet celebrity and how the public sees them through the lens of social media."

Along with the video premiere of "Famous Phone Figure," Allah-las are getting ready to set off of their tour across North America and Europe, and will be releasing their highly anticipated third album Calico Review on September 9th.
