Listening to Best Friends’ ‘Throwing Up’ EP in the chill of an early Sheffield evening seems contrary to the feel conveyed in the four-piece’s bright and overdriven, surf-pop grooves. The heavy punch delivered in chorus lyric “you make me feel so unreal” on the EP’s lead track ‘Wasting Time’ expresses a complete radiance and fullness of sound; an energy is present which makes the lyric “feel” all the more apt.
I defy anyone not to dance when confronted with the live energy of the band. Recent gigs with the Mystery Jets and Drenge have been a testament to the fun, live show the band can put on. At the shows, the band positively colours the stage with their irreverent tunes.
