Bringing one of the most dynamically unique sounds to the Summer, Brooklyn based Friends
is a must for any playlist. At times, Manifest!
delivers a sound that seems light and bubbly, but at others they emphasize mind-bending synths wrapped up by funkadelic bass riffs. Nothing about this band is predictable and there lies their appeal. While at times, their variety prevents their album from feeling grounded, when it works, they strike gold. The quintet brings a very impressive grasp of self awareness that's uncommon for many debut albums.
