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! 🎈
BIG SHOUT OUT to Coldplay for the social media love yesterday. Watching their set at Glastonbury was one of our 2016 highlights and we were blown away to see them sharing the Friends video on their twitter and facebook pages!🎈
PLAYLISTS. Massive thanks to SpotifyUK/Japan/Netherlands/Germany/Australia and 4000 others for adding 'Friends' to their playlists this week and also to Huw Stephens for including in on Radio One's Best of BBC Introducing playlist after spinning it earlier in the week.🎈
LESS THAN A WEEK since its release, we're bowled over by the early support given to our new single Friends. Massive thanks to Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1, John Kennedy at Radio X, Alan Raw at BBC Introducing in West Yorkshire and Scruff of the Neck Records for the Amazing Radio spotlight as well as the various regional, online and community stations who have given it a spin! 🎈
LESS THAN A WEEK since its release, "Friends" is gathering increasing attention from the blogosphere, propelling us into this week's Hype Machine's 10 Most Blogged Artists. Here's a slice of the nice things being said about our latest track...🎈
"Thumps and drives with gritty guitars, a funky bassline, a punchy kick and soaring harmonies."
"Raucous rocker with a sweet sentiment."
- The Revue
"The kind of melodic work that draws in fizzing crowds to intimate venues."
- Get Into This
"The track thumps and drives with gritty guitars, a funky bassline, a punchy kick and soaring harmonies. Abrupt drop-outs and unexpected builds give the song its fun, quirky character. The attention to detail, the nuanced guitar motifs, everything comes together to create an exciting and polished product...a refreshing break from the cookie-cutter alt-rock that dominates the airwaves today." - Earmilk
