Southern Californian quintet Sleeping Dogs has unveiled their latest single and video, “Let’s Be Friends,” a fun, vampire love story that follows their previous (and debut) track, “No Mercy.” The new Jarrod Anthonee-filmed video stars internet personalities The Girl IQ (over 1.9 million followers on TikTok, known for empowerment and inclusion) and The Magic Crasher (over 3.2 million followers on TikTok, known for his creative viral “Magic Prank” videos).

The band commented on the clip, stating, “The Magic Crasher and The Girl IQ had great romantic chemistry, which really brought the story to life. They were awesome.”

With their debut EP due in November and a full-length slated for early 2022, these dogs will soon have their day. Consisting of Bobby Amodeo (bass, vocals), Danny Walker (lead guitar), Higgins X-13 (guitar) Spider (drums) and George Hughes, Jr. (keys), who is the keyboardist for Ziggy Marley, will be delivering many more goods in the months tom come.
