🎈JAMES CHATTED to BBC News about headlining the BBC Music Introducing stage at Reading Festival & Leeds Festival this weekend.
Luckily, he managed to keep his cool. "The singer/guitarist admits he's been practicing his best rock 'n' roll 'foot on the monitor' pose for the latest big occasion. 'It's what the audience wants and deserves.' " 😂
RADIO 1 PLAYLIST! After numerous plays on BBC national radio courtesy of Huw Stephens Phil Taggart, Tom Robinson and regionally via Alan Raw and Jono Brine, we're delighted to see that Friends has made this week's BBC Radio 1 playlist, alongside Bruno Mars, Drake and our old pals Catfish & the Bottlemen. Thanks to everyone whose given it a spin, particularly Huw for making it his Tip Of The Week on his BBC Introducing show a few weeks ago and getting the whole ball rolling! 🎈
Absence is the lead track from our upcoming EP, out later this month (details to follow shortly). A live performance of the song filmed on Glastonbury's BBC Introducing stage was included in their Best of Sunday festival highlights in June.
