Zoella, eat your heart out – Leeds band Bruising vlog through their ‘I Don’t Mind’ video

How to layer 100 lipsticks and other fashion tips

Leeds band Bruising have just announced their new single (the dreamy, Breeders-ish ‘I Don’t Mind’ will come out on local label Beech Coma on Dec 2nd) with this video that pays homage to the great minds of our day: vloggers.

Each member of the group recorded and edited their own contribution. It’s the freedom of the Internet after all. I mean, do you think Lil Bub is arsed to run her ideas past anyone before putting them out there?! Of course not. That’s why Lil Bub is doing this rather than a claustrophobic office job.

Or, as the band put it: “We felt it important to make a video that showcased our unique talents for storytelling and personal brands.”
