4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, diverse and fresh, 28 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Manifest! (Audio CD)
Aside from having an annoyingly ambiguous name, Friends are an `indie' band from Brooklyn who have been widely acclaimed by various sources as last year NME named them in their top 50 artists of 2011 and Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens chose their single `Mind Control' as his `hottest record in the world'. I've now listened to this album about 4 or 5 times and I still can't decide if they're quite good, or incredibly annoying. `Friend Crush', `Mind Control' and `His Girl' are singles from the album and all carry interesting melodies and exotic sounding accompaniments - a theme that is held the whole way through the album. However, `Ideas On Ghosts' and `Va Fan Gör Du' are the real gems on Manifest! as they genuinely sound different and unusual (compared to trying to sound different). Lead vocalist Samantha Urbani sings in a rather nasal tone which personally I find rather irritating, but, saying this, it works with the `hipster' style they have going on and when I saw these guys live they were completely incredible, putting on an insane show. So, if you're looking for `indie' music that is kinda great but also kinda sucks then Friends are your friends.
