After a week of touring the UK with Wolf Girl, London’s jangly Suggested Friends today release their long-awaited eponymous debut album – and we’re the lucky ones to premiere the video for their latest single.
‘Please Don’t Look At Me On The Bus’ is an infectious tale of public transport harassment that gives a nod to the 90’s with its lo-fi vibes. Faith Taylor’s pitch-perfect vocals are frank in their narrative, but beautiful to the ears; Jack McGinn’s pop-punk guitar riffs build towards an catalyst that feels ready to blow before the tracks’ two minutes immediately fold.
With the accompanying music video witnessing women and non-binary folk challenging manspreading in public vehicles and spaces, Suggested Friends have successfully tackled a recurring social issue within a bitesize, tasty tune that’s guaranteed to get your head bopping and your legs moving. Is that skills or what?
Recorded and mixed by Mark Jasper of Sound Savers Studio, Suggested Friends’ first LP takes you through one whole year of the band’s songwriting – and thanks to its clever pop hooks and ridiculously catchy melodies, we’re not surprised that it’s one of our favourite albums of the year. Listen to ‘Please Don’t Look At Me On The Bus’ below, get your album orders in – and catch Suggested Friends live in Brighton tonight on for their last date of the tour:
