Preserves the live-performance integrity of a 4-piece band while at the same time delivering big hooks and a polished sense of mystery.

Make Friends is an Indie Rock group out of Bristol, UK, who are following up on last year's debut EP "Hi" with new single "When Nothing's Said." This dynamic, drum-forward exploration of codependency and the irrational paranoia that comes with it is a gritty and direct move forward for this exciting new band as only their fourth single release.

Tom Andrew delivers his signature, emotive vocal alongside slick lyrics and a melodic sense of style that is reminiscent of East London art punk stalwarts Bloc Party. With recent support from Radio X and BBC Radio 6, Make Friends is building a core following both in the UK and stateside, from Chicago to Dallas. An infectious combination of organic beats and dark indie vibes sets the scene for an instant classic, as Make Friends preserves the live-performance integrity of a 4-piece band while at the same time delivering big hooks and a polished sense of mystery.

This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
