Friedberg are an all-female-four-piece based in London, centred around singer, guitarist and striker of cowbells Anna Friedberg. Their music has often been described as a blend of post punk and alt-rock doused in alluring pop sensibilities - something that is immediately familiar, but also like nothing you’ve ever heard before.
They first stormed onto the scene in 2019 with their debut single ‘BOOM’, a dissonant sirens call with its ominous riff and seductive benign vocals. Follow up track ‘Go Wild’ quickly yielded placements with FIFA 20, the BBC's Normal People adaptation, Netflix’s Biohackers, and other shows across the world. The past year saw the band refining their sound and harnessing the energy of their highly praised live shows. Their forthcoming EP ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah’ (due on the 19th March) was recorded in equal parts across Berlin and London with collaborators Daniel Brandt (Brandt Brauer Frick), Matthias Biermann (Roosevelt) and Matt Allchin (Florence & The Machine, Soak, George Ezra). The highly anticipated EP features the single ‘Pass Me On’ and latest release ‘Lizzy’, a fuzzed-out foray into the inner workings of Anna Friedberg’s mind.
With impressive radio and press support across Europe, and festival slots at Reeperbahn, Eurosonic and BBC Introducing under their belt, Friedberg have already earned a reputation as one of the most exciting new bands around right now.
