Friends – “A Thing Like This”

This last year has been very good to Friends: The Bushwick band earned their BTW in April; they went big in October compliments of the “I’m His Girl” video and a hailed CMJ; and have 2012 all teed up with a debut LP on the way and a warm embrace from the UK via the NME, and via the Elton John, who insisted they attend his holiday party because that is a thing Elton John does to fashionable young things from NYC/Eminem. You learn about the holiday party thing during Friends Samantha Urbani and Matthew Molinar’s chat in this recent BBC Maida Vale session, which is essentially a DJ-prompted roll call of the notable points along their buzz chart ending with the treat of the net debut of their prototypically post-disco slinker “A Thing Like This.” Forward to seven minutes on this embed and enjoy:
