'Friday Afternoon' itself is about standing up for yourself particularly in your teenage years, where I feel a lot of people struggle. The mix of strings with the typical rock sound of guitars and drums adds a unique take. With the soft voice from Finn Bell it's a captivating track with a lot of depth to it. Bell's voice sounds incredibly mature throughout the track and is very impressive to have that amount of grit and emotion in his voice at such a young age. The chorus becomes that of a classic rock tracks that I would listen to when I was younger with that more echoing sound. It's clear to see influences from Nirvana, Alice In Chains and Smashing Pumpkins.
It's a brilliant debut from such a young band who've been together just over a year. They've also had some great success already opening for artists such as The Tubes and Berlin as well as playing festivals including Make Music Pasadena and Echo Park Rising. It'll be surprising if these don't make some noise coming into the world of rock music.
