Rock quartet Bridges are now re-releasing their uplifting single 'BFF' on 7" vinyl as an AA side along with their other track 'Ballgowns'. The single is out now on Bear Pit Records.
The video features the band rocking out live, alongside brief glances of rainy road trips, friendly hang outs and seaside retreats. Heavy drums uniquely punctuate the otherwise atmospheric soundscape, strung together by the gentle rock pipes of singer Ethan Proctor and his heart-warming lyrics. But as the song goes on, it turns into a crescendo of energy with joyful harmonies and melodic guitars that will certainly leave any listener feeling upbeat.
The band; who are vocalist and guitarist Ethan Proctor, guitarist Josh Redman-Thomas, bassist Henry Matthews and drummer Joe Lane; are celebrating their UK tour, which sees them touring throughout June and finishing up with a handful of festivals in July and August including 2000 Trees Festival, Harbourside Festival, Y Not Festival, Indiependance Festival and New Age Festival. It marks another sensationally busy year for the four-piece, who have previously supported artist like Little Matador, George Ezra, To Kill A King and Kids In Glass Houses, and last year hit up more prestigious festival slots like Glastonbury, Dot To Dot and Liverpool Sound City.
