Introducing: FRIENDS ELECTRIC {0}

I’m not sure how I missed this band a few months ago, but better late than never. Based in South Wales, UK, Friends Electric are an electro-rock quartet in their early 20s who formed their first band aged fourteen. Sneaking in to a Soulwax show in 2006 persuaded them to swap their guitars for synths, move together into a terraced house and do jobs as diverse as delivering pizzas to fund the purchase of enough equipment to fill their front room.

Their debut single “Wall of Arms” was released via Self Raising Records in summer 2010, with its follow up, “Golden Blood,” released November 2010. (The latter of the two is definitely one of my personal favorite tracks of 2010.) Keep an eye out for these young lads to do big things in 2011.
