Brand New Friend – Girl (Xtra Mile Recordings) 

Brand New Friend - Girl

Release Date: Out Now

Now, this is genuinely exciting stuff. Northern Irish quartet Brand New Friend are just young enough to be genuinely fresh an they’ve been picked up by one of my all time favourite labels in Xtra Mile Recordings. New single ‘Girl’ is garage punk with a youthful spirit and that secret to eternal energy that the Undertones once found. The sibling rivalry for the mic between brother and sister combo Taylor and Lauren Johnson is sweet but it’s also incredibly sharp, bringing to mind the likes of the Subways and latter-day Ash. Three chords, confused emotions and a big bag of energy is all you need to start a punk band and these guys have got all three in spades. More to come from these four, much more.

Live Dates:

15th March – Borderline, London w/Pretty Vicious
28th March – Black Box, Belfast
28th April – Black Box, Belfast
