Bristol-based band, Make Friends, were formed after being collectively inspired by the indie-dance-punk of early era Foals’ ‘Antidotes’, and melodic alt-pop of Bombay Bicycle Club. The band continue to bring their fresh take on modern indie music and their debut EP forged fan favourite ‘Ellie’, followed with a string of singles and a second EP in 2021.

Much of their work was written over various states of lockdown, which supplied a surprisingly creative climate for the band, with lyrics naturally gravitating towards tackling themes of isolation and mental health.

To date, the band have seen strong support from BBC Introducing in the West, with single ‘Fever’ even receiving Radio 1 Airplay, as well as being selected for a live session at the esteemed Maida Vale Studios.

With the help of Ed Nash (Bombay Bicycle Club) at the helm as producer and co-writer, Make Friends’ began work on their debut album set for release over the next year.
