With summer edging ever closer, there’s nothing we want more than music to reflect the scorching heat that (we hope) will occur. And for that, we needn’t look any further than Birmingham’s own Friday Club. Their music takes bounding rhythms and resounding guitars and uses them to encapsulate a youthful energy within three-minute pop sensations. It’s teenage rock and roll at its best – sure, it might leave you wanting to Breakfast-Club slide down the corridor, but who said that was a bad thing?
Their stand-out track ‘All I Want To Do Is Fuck’ (below) takes raw riffs and rowdy refrains, crafting them into an anthem to a stellar night on the town. It’s vibrant, it’s energetic, and most of all, it’s good fun. Honestly, what more can you ask for?
You can catch Friday Club at the Hare & Hounds this Saturday (May 25,) along with Evil Alien and The Dirty Rivers as part of This Feeling’s Birmingham launch night.
