(March 6, 2020) – Los Angeles-based trio Fast Friends premiere an explosive new single “Body” today. The song was self-produced and recorded and is available to stream / purchase from Dine Alone Records HERE. The video is directed by Maggie Levin who also directed the band’s incredibly unsettling video for “Creeper”. As for the inspiration behind the new single, says FF, “We were all scared to ask our girlfriends what they thought of our bodies. Yes, it’s from the perspective of old dudes, but I think everybody has had self doubt about how they look. I mean, humans look WEIRD.” About the video, ⅓ of the band Tom Peyton warns, “it’s very cringy and uncomfortable and pretty gross, best to not watch in public. I’d tell you to enjoy it, but…” Prepare yourself for the “Body” video available HERE.
Fast Friends don’t create music for music’s sake. According to them, “That’s super boring. It only matters if you are saying something that you are desperate to say and that you are scared to say and that you don’t think anyone else is going to say.” What the 3-piece of reticent hitmakers have discovered is the formula to making catchy pop songs sound very loud and making people feel uncomfortable.
Comprised of notable songwriters and producers – Peyton from the San Francisco Bay Area, Ryan Spraker from Boston, and Frederik Thaae from Denmark – the like-minded collective started hanging out in L.A. in 2015 when they accidentally wrote a rock song together, then another one, and another, until they realized that the only way the songs were going to come out was if they started a band and put it out themselves. With individual resumes that boast writing and producer credits for artists like FIDLAR, NOBRO, Arkells, Weezer, Houses and notably The Glorious Sons’ latest JUNO Award nominated album A War On Everything, Fast Friends find themselves in an enviable position of putting out music whenever they feel like.
The band is putting the finishing touches on the first of 2 EPs planned for later this year. More information will be released as available.
