Friends

Brooklyn five piece who are currently reshaping swaggering electro pop in their own image after singles like the bass heavy funk of I'm His Girl and the addictive Friend Crush have made waves across the world. They've been listed on the BBC's influential Sound of 2012, have sold out shows in London and gained their first cover from The Fly magazine. Forming back in 2010 around songwriter Samantha Urbani whose upfront, hip hop (and very New York) vocal delivery has a striking brashness that has rarely been heard since the heyday of Neneh Cherry. Debut album, out in April on Lucky Number, is set to make an even bigger splash.

"Pop songs pure and simple…Friends possess glowing potential in abundance" NME

"Equal parts untouchable cool and indelible, hook-laden pop music" Q
