London-based Berliners Friedberg have been lighting up BBC Introducing’s playlist of late and have today released the video for their new single Go Wild.
By Graeme Smith
In a twist of delightful irony, Go Wild is a mild-mannered track. Band leader Anna’s vocals are almost monotonous as she declares “you’ve got to go wild” in the chorus. She’s accompanied by an easy bass line, cantering drums and mellow guitars. The result is something new, interesting and immensely enjoyable.
It’s easy to see why Friedberg have got UK tastemakers excited. They are simultaneously right on trend and entirely fresh. Go Wild is a funky track with a surreal video. Check it out below.
