You, Me And Everything Else
House Of Strange Vinyl
Just out last week, Friendmaker stand clearly above the noise with their latest stunning single. A sound comparable to Doves, Radiohead, and Arcade Fire, Friendmaker take their Irish based set-up to the cosy edges of feelingful and universally listenable sound. The five-piece from Carrickmacross in Monaghan County have worked hard over the recent couple of years to produce some brilliant sounds in their given direction. This single is a silver-spoon-full of the musical concoction that stands between new fans and their next favourite band.
Voice and guitar break the quietude in a meaningful verse, deep and wholesome vocal flows superbly across gentle and tuneful steel string strumming. A melodic change meets subtle keyboards that harmonise and sway with the meandering kinesis. A chorus type motion appears after the music pauses for a moment, and the composition rises in a tidal caress that wanders further into the dry landscape. The band gathers momentum as keyboards and strings gain prowess among the chugging guitar and plod of spot-on bass. A surge of power builds in an encapsulated smash of music that grows and then bursts like a bubble, releasing all its energy.
