Queer garage jangle pop band Suggested Friends are releasing their first video this weekend for their track ‘I Can’t Folly My Eyes That Far (Back)’ and we’ve got the premiere right here on Overblown above. The track is a tongue in cheek critique of elitist music scenes over euphoric and sardonic jangle pop, while the video sees an unwanted party guest (who likes like a mixture of Death and Ghostface) pretty much destroy a pinata as the band play guitar on walls and stab cakes. All fun. In true DIY fashion, the track was recorded and mixed by the band at Brockley Practice Studios ad mastered by Chris Wood of Wolf Girl fame. It’ll see a physical release later this year via For The Sake Of Tapes.
Suggested Friends consists of Faith Taylor, Christabel Williams (Wolf Girl), Jack McGinn, and Kirsty Fife (Actual Crimes) and have been together since around November 2015. Since year zero they have been gigging all over the UK in the illustrious company of the likes of UK DIY legends including KEEL HER, Petrol Girls, Trust Fund, Spook School, and Big Joanie. Recently, they knocked the socks off the audience at London queer punk festival Bent Fest. Their first release was a track called ‘I Don’t Wanna Be A Horcrux For Your Soul’. That’s streaming below.
Suggested Friends are playing the following shows to support the video release:
June 3 – George Tavern, London – supporting Thyme Machine
June 30 – New Cross Inn, London – supporting Big Joanie & Dream Nails
