Given their artist title name, and the track title, I was in no way prepared for an infinitely endearing hit to reach my ears when I pressed play on up and coming artist All My Friends Hate Me’s latest single “I Need a Life”.
If you can imagine a complete modernisation of the sounds of the Kinks and the Kooks, you may be able to get an idea of All My Friends Hate Me’s unique and frankly refreshing approach to Emo Rock. There’s a similar tone to Stoner Garage Rock bands such as Fidlar, but there’s a magnetic concordance to I Need a Life which you aren’t likely to find elsewhere.
There will never be anything more essential than intellectual and sardonically-steeped music on the airwaves. After hearing I Need a Life, I’m fairly certain that All My Friends Hate Me is the artist best- equipped to dilute the nihilism of the jaded with their music.
You can check out the fourth single from All My Friends Hate Me for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
