Glasgow’s False Friends have released their first single ahead of the band’s debut EP coming out at the end of the month.

The five-piece have nestled themselves in the local music scene as a one to watch for their “orchestral” indie pop-rock. The new cut ‘Sea Levels’ is a positively buoyant track that is finished off with some delicious indie pop riffs.

Whilst trying to blend five individual influences together, the band has created a unique style of acoustic/orchestral indie pop-rock. Their main focus on writing catchy hooks and thoughtful lyrics and the genre then follows suit.

Talking about the track, the band said: “Sea Level is a song about all the distractions that we give ourselves (and that are given to us) to avoid reality. The track sits thematically with the rest of the EP as a part of life in a small town, with each track dealing with a different aspect of this life.

“However, in terms of genre it’s definitely a different feeling to the rest of our EP as well as our back catalogue!”

‘Sea Level’ will appear on the band’s upcoming debut EP A Great Day For The Parish which is released on November 29th.
