Friends are coming full circle and re-releasing their signature track – the slinky, swaggering siren call of “I’m His Girl”. The single now also comes backed with amazing remixes from the legendary Arthur Baker and the rapidly ascendant AlunaGeorge.
Arthur Baker adds his trademark analogue synths and drum machine loops and subtly introduces the vocal hook-line before stretching out the rest of the track. Baker knows how your feet and ears work more than even you do, and this is New York music through and through. Whilst AlunaGeorge’s addition of effortlessly sultry urban cool, combining a dash of sub, and salsa-spiced steel drums with the original’s ‘bass-line of the year’ turn it into an anthem for any carnival or festival.
Friends will be returning to play a special one-off show at the 100 Club with Santigold and Best Coast, as well as a slew of festival dates throughout the summer. Full dates are below.
