Little more than a Casio keyboard, drums (occasionally electronic) and some vocals.
That's Gentle Friendly. Yet within this spartan template, the two piece cover a vast variety of sounds, all rendered with a typically English sensibility.
Releasing material on labels such as No Pain in Pop and Upset The Rhythm, the band recently signed to Fat Cat.
Toasting this, Gentle Friendly gathered a number of tracks on the free download 'Rrides' EP. Essentially matching the blistering no wave x pop feel of HEALTH but with a Syd Barrett-esque control of whimsy, Gentle Friendly are now working on their second album.
For now, though, Clash can offer up the premiere of their new video. 'Autumn Night' might not exactly be seasonal, but the track itself is imbued with the carefree values of Spring.
Check it out now.
Catch Gentle Friendly at the Shacklewells Arms in London tonight (March 14th) - full information.
