The Friendsters are this awesome band from Sydney, a statement I’m sure you’ve heard a million times over. But really, this is grilling, sneering post-punk noise with a slight pop edge, a statement that sounds so pretentious even Arcade Fire fans would steer away from uttering it.
Let me back up a little bit: The Friendsters are just plain cool as fuck. Think of something like Screaming Females with some better riffs and droning vocals. The chorus of ‘Drain My Blood’ was purpose built for screaming at someone you loved and now hate with the intensity of Mount Vesuvius. How many songs can claim that?
The Friendsters are playing a show with Oily Boys and Reptiles on May 14th at Good God, go if you want to see some awesome music
