Another week, another Brooklyn buzz band. One of the few guitar bands on the BBC Sound of 2012 list, Friends lept onto many a rader last year with the release of I’m His Girl and now they have given more, with new single Mind Control.
It’s an upbeat pop pie with a hearty filling of funky basslines and yelping vocals courtesy of Samantha Urbani – exactly what caught our eye about them in the first place then.
Along with this release the band have released a few details about their accompanying debut album, which will be called Manifest! and released on June 4th.
