We are extremely thrilled to announce that we have officially signed (excluding US), Brooklyn based band, Friends.
We recently released Friends debut release, Friend Crush, on limited edition 7” vinyl and instantly sold out on pre-orders alone. The band were placed at number 24 in the NME’s ‘best new bands of 2011’ and have also been tipped as one of the bands to watch for 2011 by Stereogum, Abeano and Boomkat who said: ‘This is the kind of debut single most pop-eyed acts would kill their mates for, with reverbed snare and ESG-esque bassline iced with synth and that super cool vocal!’
To celebrate the signing we are pleased to present the video for Friend Crush. It’s a visually ethereal psychedelic pop gem, simultaneously washed out, yet aware of its subtle sexiness, and with lead singer Samantha Urbani’s unique style clearly visible.
Friends will be releasing a new single, “I’m His Girl”, in September and their debut album in early 2012.
