The Young Friends

11 Feb

The Young Friends are a band from Phoenix, Arizona who haven’t been making tunes for that long. They count Sonic Youth and The Ronettes as their influences whilst it’s easy to trace the sounds of Americana and early rock n roll in their music. Their sound is very much of the moment as there is more than a passing resemblance to former label mates The Drums. If anything Young Friends are more laid back in their sound and seemingly a lot less obsessed with all things Manchester. See below for their myspace


They also appear on the excellent and free to download compilation, ‘Pop Music Volume Two’ from Holiday Records.
