Julien-K‘s “We’re Here With You” is a highly contagious dance tune with a simple, yet perfectly matched music video. The guitar and synths flow seamlessly that if you are not dancing to the beat, you are most certainly tapping your feet. Nod your head continuously as you pair the lyrics with the effortless video clips of each band member rocking out with their instruments and putting on a show. The upbeat bass lines and synths are sure to leave you wanting more in this indietronic and extremely colorful music video.

The song is a collaboration with our long time co-conspirator Bryan Black of Motor fame. Motor fucking rules.
We are huge fans of Bryan’s work, and we believe he is easily one of the coolest and most exciting electronic artists alive today (apparently Martin Gore agrees with us – check out their latest collab, it’s amazing). Many of our core JK fans will remember our remix of Motor’s Flashback, and Bryan’s insane remix of Someday Soon. I have a feeling that we will continue working together for a long time – i wouldn’t be surprised if we toured together …. soon (that is a hint Bryan… let’s do it!).

You may notice something different happening in the JK rhythm section. That would be our new friend Eli James. After playing with Eli in the auditioning process after Elias made his decision to commit full time to his family, we decided it would be amazing to have Eli be a part of this video. His energy was contagious and we felt we needed to do a video with him AND a video with Frank to help us really get a feel for the two drummers. It actually turned out to be a really cool experience, and i am sure we will be working with Eli again in the future. In the end we simply felt that Frank was the right fit for Julien-K – but both these guys are amazing drummers.
