Scary Little Friends – In The Press 

“An ear smack of buoyant power pop.” – Popdose

“There’s nothing random about their aggressive yet tuneful brand of power pop.” – BLURT

“An incredibly accomplished sound.  Instantly likeable.” – The Sound of Confusion (UK)


 “‘Made Up My Mind’ was borne out of a moment of frustration,” says Scary Little Friends front man, Chris Jones of the latest single (hear it via Paste) from the San Francisco-based trio’s upcoming record. “A time when you finally stand up for yourself and say ‘no’ to someone who has been railroading your life.”

Jones recently chatted in-depth with SF Weekly about the new “Silent Revolution,” EP, his band’s history, and tonight’s gig at the Great American Music Hall, which marks the first time that Scary Little Friends will be appearing on the famed venue’s stage.  Read the SF Weekly interview here.

At just seven songs, the instant sing-along qualities of the “Silent Revolution” EP (Jan. 29th, Randm Records) fills the “leaves you wanting more” edict perfectly.  The record’s lyrics, addressing alienation with less of a generic, transient fist-in-the-air, and more of an impression-leaving palm-to-the-forehead, make the band one to watch in 2016.

“The internet is the modern battlefield. It is inevitable that that world comes crashing down upon us,” says Jones of the record’s concept. “Perhaps there is hope in the aftermath. Perhaps we will be born anew into a world without technology.”

It’s this idea that takes the “Silent Revolution” EP away from simple contemplation and complaining about the way things are and into the timeless quality of a record about the way things could be. This is best heard on the track “In This Lifetime,” which Jones refers to as his “revolution song.”

“You’re young, you’re crazy, but you’re not alone,” Jones reminds us when discussing the tune, and in the song itself when he sings, “There’s a season when we reach for higher ground, shatter the lies we believe in. In this lifetime, we all lose our minds, and sometimes love is all we’re searching for.”

The “Silent Revolution” EP by Scary Little Friends arrives on January 29th, 2016 from Randm Records.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
