Friends - Mind Control

There's worrying hints of 80s synth retro creeping in around the edges of this third single, plus the dread spectre of Paul Epworth mixing, but Friends keep their skeletal block party space-funk intact by thickening up the carrier from which ESG achieved vertical takeoff, keeping the cooler-than-cliche vocals, gang shouts and flexible bass as intact as possible. And then, a percussion jam. Album Manifest! is out June 4th.
