Gentle Friendly make effervescent and explosive songs that revel in the unexpected. Think along the lines of fellow pop experimental- ists animal Collective and Dan Deacon, along with a hint of no age. These are screwy pop songs that peak and flow with furiously charged vocals. The duo are composed of David and Daniel, noted also for his efforts with Buttton- head. The band are due to release their debut single on no Pain in Pop later this year.
