Swedish indie alt-rock band Tribe Friday have revealed their new single “Andy” and its accompanying video.
‘Hemma’ is the Swedish word for ‘home’, the ultimate theme for this retrospective, Swedish bubblegum emo, “hometown trauma dump” record. Inspired by artists like The Strokes, My Chemical Romance and La Dispute, Tribe Friday has created a genre-bending sound and a narrative that directly reflects their experiences growing up in Sweden while paying homage to the indie post-rock movement.
Marrying the rugged indie rock of the early-2000s with gen-Z post-pandemic party vibe bliss, Tribe Friday is a band of guitar-slinging emo kids. Their repertoire consists of upbeat songs that speak to self-deprecation, identity, confusion, love, and death and are anchored by sarcasm, wit and charm. ‘Hemma’ marks a shift away from their party essence, and further into their emo influences.
Watch the Benjamin Löfquist-directed video below.
