13,000 plays. That's all I'm saying to myself as I listen to Canadian three-piece Friendo for the first time. How and why have I not heard of these before? I don't know. The important thing is that I have heard of them now.
All I know is that at least one member either used to be or still is in noisy band Women, and that these woozy, reverberating jams spanning all kind of genres and influences (you can hear bits of punk, 60s-style pop, and an experimental, noisy edge) are all kinds of ace.
Check out some stuff below. Also, Cardiff folk should see them supporting Cold Pumas at Buffalo Bar on July 8 along with Saturday's Kids. That'll be excellent.
