Los Angeles based band, Half the Animal just dropped their ultra retro music video for their new single " Bad Bad Love," via Atwood Magazine. 


For those who are not familiar with the band, here's two things you need to know: 


1. The band was formed by former MTV Laguna Beach cast members Chase Johnson and Nick Gross. (now joined by Evan Smith and Dan Graham) 


2. With influences like Incubus and Blink 182, the band remembers how they wanted to know everything about their role models. Remembering this, the band created a YouTube account where fans can see behind the scenes and " feel connected and be connected." 


Forming just under one year ago, the band already released numerous singles and a debut EP titled, Shapes. 


To end the year on a high note, the band has released " Bad Bad Love"


If you're a fan of Maroon 5, you will enjoy this song. However, unlike Maroon 5, Half the Animals portrays a more 80s vibe. The song is about " the power of a woman's love on a man who doesn't know any better," according to frontman Chase Johnson.
