Glasgow based five-piece False Friends release their vibrant indie-pop single ‘Anywhere at All’.
Since forming in 2016, the band have secured gigs in King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and Nice ‘N’ Sleazy ― two of Glasgow’s most popular music venues. They have been described as a band “taking flight […] a soaring new act on Glasgow’s music scene” and their live sets have also been met with critical acclaim. The five musicians have varying musical influences, ranging from Frightened Rabbit to Arcade Fire. Such a blend of tastes has created a unique sound, which has been described as “acoustic meets pop-rock” and “orchestral indie-pop”.
Their single, ‘Anywhere at All’ is full of pop-rock sensibility. The eclectic mix of indie, pop and alt-rock sounds makes the track appealing to a wide variety of audiences. The single is driven by catchy lyricism, charming refrains and percussion driven hooks. All of this aside, one of the most admirable elements of the track is its use of dual vocals. The vocalism creates a rich and uplifting sound, that blends harmoniously with the song’s superb use of rhythmic instrumentation.
