Bristol indie pop four-piece Make Friends have aired the video for their latest single “Falter“.
The song, produced by Ed Nash (Bombay Bicycle Club), is part of our current playlist and came out in July. Grab it here.
Commenting on the track, they said:
“Falter was part of a collection of songs we’d previously demoed for our most recent EP. Whilst temporarily left behind, the track wasn’t left to gather dust, and was reworked with production by Ed Nash, who helped to flesh the song into it’s full-bodied final form. Inspired in part by fractured relationships, ‘Falter’ focuses on the conversations scarcely communicated, and how that can lead to further dissolution of partnerships, and of one’s own sense of self.”
Speaking about Make Friends, Nash said, “I can honestly say they are one of the most talented yet most underrated guitar bands in the UK at the moment.”
Watch the video below.
Brought together through a shared love of progressive indie-pop, Make Friends formed whilst studying in Bath. They found their sound when they migrated a few miles down the road to Bristol and began working with producer Peter Sené, a touring member of Everything Everything and John Grant.
While the band takes cues from contemporary artists like Sam Fender and Sundara Karma, their inspiration has always come from classics, such as The Police’s bass-driven groove or The Cure’s atmospheric chorus guitars..
