With genre-bending anthems translated through impactful and relatable emotions, New Friends are reinventing the standard for what popular music can be. As a product of their childhoods, they are nostalgic for the bands they loved growing up and continue to emulate those influences with a modern twist. When Stefan Boulineau, Ayden Miller, Cole Wilson and Conrad Galecki crossed paths as music students in late 2018, the group clicked instantly and began working on demos in dorm rooms in London, Ontario. It didn’t take long until their hook-filled debut single, Purple Candy was out in the world. With a charismatic frontman in Boulineau who displays dreamy originality in his voice, metaphorical yet relatable lyrics from Miller, rich guitar melodies from Wilson, and production magic + class writing from Galecki, the possibilities are endless as to the impact New Friends will go on to make in the music world.
