(Actually, Danny Cohen says): I wanted to make walking fun. For it to look effortless, adventurous and romantic - but all through a pair of fingers.
So the search for the right pair of fingers began. I auditioned more than two hundred pairs. Film and TV stars were asking to play the role but they were acting too much with it.
Finally I found the right pair on a man called Justin. The lady fingers are Helen's, she's the H in HLA, the production company who made it all happen.
Myself and a fine chap called Dominic made all the sets with paper, scissors and sticky-back plastic.
Hope you like the video, and hope it makes you want to walk ...

"Essentially a double a side, 'Physical Energy' / 'Drive' is a slice of wistful and angry melancholia, driven by hard pianos and unrelenting synth bass, though not without a sense of humour to boot. rakish, distorted vocals teamed up with glorious harmonies make this a little gem of a record that must only be played loud and preferably with tons of eyeliner on. think the cure and bowie after a heavy night and a punch up..."

"On constant rotation on the stereo since it was dropped in 3 hours ago - ones to watch in 2007" (Rough Trade)
"Something brand new, something we really really like.. something we've been dying to play you" (Zane Lowe, Radio One)
"Bewitchingly catchy at their best, Archangel take the very essence of a balmy summer afternoon and instil it through some jumpy indie rock curves that are impossible to dodge. Never in your face, the songs allure is purely charm based, and one you wont want to resist" A Subba-Cultcha.com SINGLE OF THE MONTH "An exceptionally good cake!!!"
"Despite the stuttering pace of 'Physical Energy', with its timely handclaps and short beats, this is deceptively languid. The repetition of the synth gives the lull of chill, but it's without a doubt clear that Archangel are influenced by something far more gritty and dystopian. A band to keep a beady eye on." Disorder Magazine
"The second release from London based Archangel sees the art indie upstarts take on the mantle of early Cure and 80's Bowie. With dark undertones and mournful harmonies, the band are touching the darkest sinews that many bands willingly avoid. The song relies on a menacing keyboard bassline and juddering drums that sit on the precipice of violence without peering too far over the edge. There's a melancholic fear that shows itself in the melody, but this is not to be mistaken for sounding depressing. Far from it - the song is of the sort that would appear in an indie club as the night is wearing on and needs an injection of energy" Click Music
