Scars On 45 Premiere Video For "Crazy For You"; Top 20 At Triple A; Fall Tour Announced

British alt rock/pop band Scars On 45 have premiered their new video for single “Crazy For You” with Yahoo Music. Director DJay Brawner (Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran, The Used, Gym Class Heroes) who previously worked with the band on their 2011 video for “Give Me Something,” takes the viewer on an endearingly quirky (and even slightly sci-fi leaning) journey of early romance. The lead single from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album and Nettwerk debut Safety In Numbers (October 7, 2014), “Crazy For You” is quickly climbing the Triple A Top 30 Chart, landing at #18 this week.

Of the video, vocalist/guitar player Danny Bemrose says, “Although the song is hugely personal to us, it's also pretty self-explanatory and universally relatable. I think we've all secretly longed for someone at some point...some of us more than others. We wanted a video that kept the general theme of the lyrics but that was also a bit different and weird...I think we definitely got that!”
