Matt Halper and Eli Sones, the young masterminds behind Los Angeles’ TWO FRIENDS, have quickly grown from high school bedroom producers into one of the most promising songwriters in dance music. Today, June 22, the pair release their new single “BANDAID.” Listen to it below:
“The song is about when you get together with someone just so you can get over the last person you were with- and you know it’s not gonna last, it’s just sort of a bandaid to help you heal,” says TWO FRIENDS. “In hindsight, this may have been subliminally inspired by what Susie & Sally did to us in fifth grade, so we had to rebound with Sami and Sophie. We’re super excited to finally share it with all the homies!”
Known for their viral remixes of Dua Lipa’s “IDGAF,” Charlie Puth’s “How Long,” MGMT’s “Kids” The Killers’ “Mr Brightside” and Kanye West’s “Touch The Sky,” as well as their latest original offerings “Just A Kid,” “While We’re Dreaming,” “Emily” and “Out Of Love,” the two have quickly mastered a wide range of genres from pop-leaning to dance-driven records. Collectively their tracks garner over 860,000 monthly listens on Spotify.
With support now coming from the likes of Tiesto, The Chainsmokers (who touted them to Billboardas one of the most underrated dance artists today), Martin Garrix, and many more, and with a whole host of original releases locked in for the second half of 2018, TWO FRIENDS undoubtedly look set to dominate this year and beyond.
