[SONG OF THE DAY] Make Friends - "Ellie"

Make Friends 2019

It’s time you got to know Bristol 4-piece Make Friends, who recently shared the video for their latest track, “Ellie”. The song is taken from their upcoming Hi EP, which drops tomorrow (7/26). The band have been carving out a space for their blend of glimmering indie pop with previous tracks, “Talk Tomorrow” and “Drop Naked”. If you live across the pond you might have caught wind of them on either BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio X, Amazing Radio, and BBC Introducing, where they’ve been getting some love.

Speaking of the latest single, lead singer Tom Andrew says "Ellie is the most personal track on the EP. It's a retrospective account of the frustration and emptiness felt from a lack of connection in your relationship. It's also about coming to terms with the fact that maybe it coming to an end was for the best and accepting that they might be happier with someone else."
