It can not be denied: Friends is yet another DIY-band from Brooklyn. Yet, the five-man band formed around frontwoman Samantha Urbani is definitely not a dime a dozen indie buzzband. The first few singles that made them stand out in 2011, “Friend Crush” and “I’m His Girl,” combine disco, electronic and tropical influences, often topped with a groovy bass line. The result is light, poppy and above all very refreshing.
