FRIEND OF A FRIEND Releases New Single “HLS”


November 13, 2023 Indie rock band Friend of a Friend is thrilled to release their new single “HLS.” “HLS” is the 2nd single from their sophomore album, “FACILITIES,” which is set for an early 2024 release. The first single “Always On Time” from FACILITIES has garnered attention from Rolling Stone Espanol, Wonderland Magazine, Pressed Orange, and a spot on the New Notable Spotify playlist. In support of their new music, the band will be touring all year long and in 2024 as well. See all tour dates below. The band calls HLS “a song that is really a part of our DNA as a band, it has been with us for a long time and has evolved along with us. We wanted to take all the sadness the song could be and once was and transform that into a place of power.” ABOUT FRIEND OF A FRIENDAmerican duo Friend of a Friend (Claire Molek, Jason Savsani) formed in the summer of 2020 after a lifetime just missing one another. The band describes the process as an almost supernatural experience. FOAF’s debut album In Arms, an intimate blend of folk, post and art rock, recorded on tape in Nashville, was independently released in late May of 2022. Since then, they’ve toured relentlessly throughout Europe and North America, and have gained over 2 million streams on their debut release. The duo is celebrated for their cinematic, fiercely experiential performance that incorporates a distorted Flamenco guitar, a midi controller and intense physicality. The strength of the duo’s bond is apparent in the music just as much as it is on stage, the performance giving “Led Zeppelin meets the year 2050.” Influences include “Portishead, M83, The Kills & Jose Gonzalez had a baby in the desert during the end of your favorite movie.” The duo explores a wide breadth of styles throughout the 12 tracks – notes of trip hop, indie rock, classic rock, noise rock, house music – but whatever genre this is anything and everything, something nostalgic and entirely new all at once. Tour DatesDecember 18 | Indianapolis, IN | Healery DIYJanuary 5 | Denver, CO | Marquis TheaterJanuary 6 | Carbondale, CO | Steve’s GuitarsJanuary 9 | Salt Lake City, UT | International Artists LoungeJanuary 11 | Reno, NV | The OfficeJanuary 12 | San Francisco, CA | El Rio (w/ Dakil)January 17 | San Diego, CA | Humble HeartJanuary 18 | Los Angeles, CA | Love Song BarJanuary 20 | Phoenix, AZ | Trunk SpaceFebruary 2 | Chicago, IL | HideoutMar 6-11 | New York, NY | New Colossus Festival
