Family Friends: I’m Like You
|Brother-sister duo Family Friends, made up of Rebecca and Tom Fitzsimons, release ‘I’m Like You’ – the second track taken from their forthcoming EP, out late Feb.
Living between Melbourne and London the group’s sound is East London cool glazed with South Australian Sun. Bouncy psych elements combine with warm hazed-out dream-pop to create infectious tunes; brimful of attitude and oozing hooks from every pore ‘I’m Like You’ is an exuberant statement track from the duo.
Whilst there is a decidedly 90s tilt to the music, with nods towards the classier elements of brit-pop and the slacker rock scene, Family Friends slot well into the modern school of tasteful, melancholic guitar-pop.
Reminiscent of the likes of Weezer, Breeders, Black Honey or Beach Baby they nonetheless retain a playfulness that grants them their own unique vibe.
