Following on from the release of their highly-praised EP ‘Is This Real’ in 2021, which was supported by BBC Radio 1’s Introducing Show with Gemma Bradley, countless DSPs and drew tastemaker media support from the likes of CLASH, Under The Radar, WONDERLAND, The Independent, Daily Star and many more, Bristol-based indie outfit Make Friends have now returned to deliver the video for their brand new single “Falter”. The song, produced by Ed Nash (Bombay Bicycle Club) marks an exciting new era for the Bristol band.
"Falter" has already seen BBC Introducing support across BBC Introducing in the West (Adam Crowther & James Threfall), BBC Radio 1 (Gemma Bradley) and 6Music (BBC Introducing Mixtape, Rob Adcock).
“Falter was part of a collection of songs we’d previously demoed for our most recent EP”, the band explains, “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.”
Dispensing hook-laden and infectiously catchy tunes, Make Friends have quickly established themselves as the next frontrunners of the UK indie pop scene. Joining forces with Ed Nash to work on their new material, they are set to mark themselves out as being one of the UK's most exciting musical exports.
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."
The band will also be embarking on two headline shows in London and Bristol this October.
