Because alot of the bands I like are Canadian or American it means I have to accept the fact that I probably won’t get to see a few of them play ever (She and Him??). Although I still hold out hope for some (Whispertown2000, I’m lookin’ at you).
Anyway, this post is about Best Friends Forever, a band I love loads from Minnesota. Last year they released Romance Conflict Adventure, which is just the most fun, delightfully poppy album ever. Bri and Jes share vocal duties, with intertwining lyrics and some lighthearted fun. I dare you to listen to their songs without nodding your head or tapping your feet.
So anyway, BFF are so far away and I don’t know what they’ve been up to this past year, apart from some US shows, so I sent them a message asking what’s going on and if there’s a possibility they would ever play London. I didn’t hold out much hope they’d be coming here anytime soon, or ever. Bri got back to me pretty quick and says they’re planning to come to Europe and London in June! How exciting is this news?? It made me very happy to hear, so I desperately hope this plan materialises.
I urge you to go to their myspace and listen to Handpocket. It’s the best. I’m really excited and I can’t wait to see them. Bri and Jes made my list of 50 female vocalists too, so go find wherever that post is and take a look. I hope you like them as much as I do.
