Friends

Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Tags: pop, indie, indie pop, weird, indiepop

Friends have also garnered praise from the likes of , among others, Nylon Magazine, The NME and Creature Mag who had this to say about them: “(Friends)boast a classic pop sound and their single ‘Friend Crush’ is simply the epitome of cool…This Brooklyn quintet are led by lead singer Samantha Urbani whose vocals drip with a gritty sex appeal that relays the heat of a NYC summer… The bass and percussion on ‘Friend Crush’ is sultry, with an instantaneously memorable keys/guitar hook that’ll have you humming this track for weeks to come. Urbani’s vocals are effortless and simultaneously flawless- this band is definitely one to watch for 2011, and they haven’t even started recording their debut album yet.”

    Rolling Stone Reviews on Friends

    "Ethically, it's pretty fucked," coos Friends singer Samantha Urbani on "Sorry," weighing her guilt over a sketchy love affair before shrugging, "I want you to come over to my house." Sure, we're in! The sexy Bushwick, Brooklyn, outfit sounds less conflicted elsewhere on a debut that often recalls New York's Eighties downtown glory days, when punk, funk and disco commingled on labels like 99 and ZE. Percussion-packed rhythms rule on Manifest!, and Urbani's raplike verses sometimes favor flow over literal meaning – see the call-and-response holler "Van Fan Gor Du," which nearly means "What the hell are you doing?" in Swedish. more at rollingstone.com

    Friends - 'Manifest!' scored 8 / 10 The heyday of new rave in all its MDMA-zing glory may seem about as relevant now as The Enemy plodding out another meat-and-two-veg record (oh, wait…), but you’ve got to admit it was fun. And with the likes of Adele and the rest of what’s been dubbed The New Boring taking pride of place at the top of the charts, what the world’s in severe need of is a band to inject a slice of giddiness into proceedings like Klaxons once did. Enter Friends’ ‘Manifest!’ – the soundtrack to every pissed-up summer party you’ll have this year....more at nme.com

    Tweet With the band name, Friends, and the first single "Friend Crush" it shouldn't surprise you that the tunes coming from this Brooklyn-based group are best listened to dancing with...yup...friends. "Friend Crush" is a sultry afro-pop jam with cute lyrics like "I want to be your friend, I want to ask your advice on everything, I want to plan something nice for the weekend". The song has a nice start-stop structure lead by a simple drum beat and pouty-meets-sexy vocals. more here
