New sounds from Brooklyn based Friends. No not the plucky six 20somethings that graced our televisions for most of the nighties. Friends are a sassy girl fronted band that make rock/pop music with a gorgeous silky smooth psychedelic vibe, but tinged with a dark sadness just bubbling under the surface. They’ve been bobbing around the blog-o-sphere for a while now, but thanks to a recent nomination on the BBC’s sound list they’ve been brought front and centre stage. Their new single ‘Friends Crush’ is released end of February on Lucky Number.
