"Sonically, Special Friend bring together multiple influences, primarily 90s-style lo-fi pop (think Yo La Tengo or The Pastels), but also sunny 60s garage and gentle mind-wandering psych. Which is not to say that there music is a lazy derivative. Rather, their style gathers all of these touch-points and fashions them into something undeniably fresh, performing a delicate balance between optimism and nostalgia."

**Various Small Flames

"Une indie pop aux guitares claires et au psychédélisme léger, héritée des Feelies et de Yo La Tengo, qui ne laissait pas de grains de sable entre les orteils mais une douce nostalgie de demi-saison…"

"I love the casual quality of the guitars, sharp chords ringing brightly before quieted picking comes in. They also meld their vocals perfectly, with huge shared melodies that should warm any fan of good pop music."
**Austin Town Hall

Special Friend is a French-American pop lo-fi duo, composed of Guillaume Siracusa on guitar and Erica Ashleson on drums. They began recording and mixing songs themselves in a studio in Montreuil, then a year later, the duo is about to release their first EP!

This is a co-release with Hidden Bay Records, Gravity Music and Howlin' Banana.
