Indie-pop quartet Friedberg have returned with their new single Go Wild. Having recently arrived from Berlin, the track came to band-leader Anna during a night out in London. She says, “I was out in the capital and was just watching the night descend into chaos, as everyone got drunker and drunker around me. At that moment, the line for the chorus: ‘you gotta go wild’ popped into my head. I ended up rushing home, and writing the song that night”. Take a listen to the track via Soundcloud below.
Back in February, the four-piece shared their desert-rock influenced debut BOOM, which brought them to the attention of tastemakers at BBC 6 Music & XFM and extensive press coverage, with The Line of Best Fit describing the track as ‘an impressive feat’.
No less ambitious than its predecessor, Go Wild shows its alt-indie lineage. It’s a slice of dreamlike, sunshine rock that is sure to be gracing the speakers of barbeques and beach parties this summer. With this track Friedberg continues their foray forwards, anticipating the arrival of their debut album in 2020.
