Our brothers Far East Movement have been busy these days. Since getting signed a few months ago they’ve been even HARDER at work (which seemed impossible figuring they worked so hard before) to create their first major label album. Check out the official music video to their first release, “Like a G6″. FM is definitely who you wanna call when it’s time to dance and party. (A G6 is a plane, in case you didn’t know) [Wes, Ted, and I made a cameo in the vid. Wes and Ted are just out of frame...but I made it into the blurry background. see me?]
We had a chance to catch up with FM a couple nights ago as we were going over some ISA concert business (upcoming post). And I gotta say, I’m so excited for where they’re headed and the potential they have in their hands right now. #1 They’re music is gaining more and more steam. #2 Their partner producers, the Stereotypes (link), are deemed by Billboard as Top 10 Producers to watch (they also produced Beibers upcoming single “Somebody to Love”.)
#3 They’re labelmates with La Roux and…er Lady Gaga. #4, 5, 6, 7 Featured on CNN, music on MTV Awards Red Carpet, “Get Him to the Greek”, #1 myspace video, etc etc <catches breath> Seriously, FM is in a great spot … BUT… they still need YOU.
Although their incredible journey and hustle as indie artists have paid off with getting signed, they’re at the beginning of a whole NEW journey, one that needs your continued support. I got their back not only because they’re good/fun/down to earth guys…but also because they have true song writing/performing talent, AND there’s no one else in the mainstream representing for Asian Americans like they are. If you’re AA, trust me, we want these guys out there giving us a face, and you want to keep them there. If ur just a WFP fan, when you support them, ur supporting us too…because it proves that some simple guys with a passion can “make it”.
So… you can start by following their Twitter (@fareastmovement), subscribing to their YT (FMonyourdial). Level up and you can go give them some pocket change in the form of buying “Like a G6″ on iTunes (link HERE). (It’s not just about the money, it’s about the numbers). Level up again… when their album comes out later this year, get yourself a copy. Until then… keep flying and pass on the far east Movement.
