Tim Lampe is a writer for I’m A Bear! Etc. and is overwhelmed by the amount of new music this week.
The video I’m featuring this week may be a little weird, but there’s a lot of familiar elements in the music that Friends makes that you’ll enjoy. The track is called “Mind Control” and features almost anything you liked about tracks from the 80s; bongo drums, zingy synths, vocal yelps. Fans of YACHT will likely rejoice at the music that Friends makes as well. The video heads into some weird territory towards the end, but overall the esthetic is great. Their debut album “Manifest” is also released today and you can check it out on your handy Spotify/Rdio/iTunes or however you delightfully consume music.
