Friends - Manifest!

Friends – Manifest!

So this week I finally got my mits on the new album from Brooklyn based, funk-pop five piece, Friends. The much talked about and highly anticipated Manifest! album finally hit records stores on 1st June bringing with it  “the hottest record in the world” according to BBC Radio One’s Zane Lowe.

Lead singer Samantha Urbani delivers a vast range of vocal stylings with lyrics ranging from whimsical to down right punk over the twelve tracks that make up the Manifest! album. Blending styles haphazardly with a light hearted approach to music the album delivered against the high expectations and continues to receive strong reviews.

Stand out moments are provided by the wickedly nonchalant swagger of  I’m His Girl and Mind Control, the album’s funk laden crescendo. Both singles, the former a previous release the latter the most recent, are a hint of the schizophrenic fun drenched nature of Manifest! Jumping joyously from hip-hop to funk and awkward post-pop-punk the album embraces a care free approach to music making devoted entirely to your listening pleasure.

Check out Manifest! via a your nearest music outlet of choice, a solid first album awaits.

Brisbane garage pop out outfit Millions are sneaking in a cheeky Sydney show ahead of their official February tour dates this Friday. Performing Upstairs at the Beresford before spinning some tunes at the World bar for a little after party action… If all goes to plan they’ll be joining me for breaky at Bondi FM for Saturday morning, before heading up to Newcastle for a gig there.

The rambunctious shenanigans look set to continue with a killer spot at Brisbane’s Big Day Out before taking on East Coast tour duties as part of the Triple Treat Tour with Nantes and Northeeast Party House. It’s all part of a packed schedule that has seen them support Gold Fields, The Belligerents and Bleeding Knees not forgetting the opening act of Splendour in the Grass this year. Not bad for a band that have been performing together for less than a year!

The lead single of the new EP is out now and yours for the price of an email. Head to the Millions bandcamp page for your free download. Then meet me upstairs at the Beresford to party like a mofo with a mojo!

Join us at Bondi FM, Curlewis st. Bondi from 9am this Saturday 14th Jan.
