The Goa Express have launched their new single, ‘Be My Friend’.
The follow-up to the Northern newcomers’ debut tune ‘The Day’, which was recorded with the Fat White Family’s Nathan Sauodi, it’s a song about having good pals, and not getting caught up in fakery.
“[It’s] taking a step away from those who’re always trying to get close to you and as both a shout out to individuality and an acceptance of rejection,” they explain. “It’s a dismissal of the modern world’s hyper-connectivity and a return to privacy, rather than the involvement of everyone knowing everyone’s business all of the time.”
They’ve a new video too, made during lockdown. “It’s a collection of stupid nights out and just day to day stuff that had mostly been recorded on Joey’s phone. None of these videos were ever taken with the intention of them being used in a music video.”
