Following the more melancholic 'It’s Alright, Let Me Go', Friends At The Falls return with the upbeat lead single 'Like We Used To', lifted from their new EP 'Be The Change'.
The synth-heavy track is bursting with nostalgia and a feel-good euphoria, showing off Friends At The Falls at their very best. Layered instrumentation of bright and uplifting synths and slick drum beats set the backdrop for a mesmerising vocal performance which boats strong harmonies and state of the art lyricism. The duo have has support flooding in from fans and influential tastemakers alike, and it's no surprise with their infectious tracks and big production offering something totally fresh but simultaneously commercial which will appeal to the masses.
“This is the song that we want to help propel our new EP right out the gates. It is upbeat, catchy, and a perfect release for mid-summer. The chorus melody on this one had been around for a while, but the whole song was pretty much finished in one night. Matt presented the initial idea for the music and Jake ran with it, adding the top line and producing it to its fullest extent."
'Like We Used To' is one of two new tracks launching the new EP, neatly accompanied by successful singles 'Be The Change, 'Start Over Again', 'Pretend You're OK', & 'It's Alright, Let Me Go', which have gone on to garner over 1.5 million Spotify streams to date.
The LA based by way of NYC, Friends at the Falls is composed of lifelong friends Jake Stam and Matt Montgomery. The band create their signature blend of Alt-rock and Indie Pop music which infuses the sounds of 80's synth to create an undeniably nostalgic sound, drawing inspiration from the likes of The Killers, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Walk The Moon and The 1975.
