Dean Manning - Be My Friend

Dean Manning  - Be My Friend
"I came back from Greece to see my family last [Australian] summer," says the mainstay of Leonardo's Bride and Holidays On Ice. "I set up a studio in the basement of my brother's house and just started throwing these ideas down."

‘Be My Friend’ lobs in exactly like that eager visitor: a few seconds of polite uncertainty then a full-body bounce on the couch. It’s power pop wrapped in cotton wool with a lyric ripe for unraveling over a bottle of wine and a guitar solo that howls at the door like a dog that's too crazy to let inside.

‘Sunday Mountain’ is the latest chapter in a story that began more than 25 years ago, with the first releases from revered Sydney pop outfit Leonardo's Bride, and their history-making classic, ‘Even When I'm Sleeping’.

Three albums with homespun dream-pop band Holidays On Ice followed, with Angie Hart (Frente) on lead vocals and drummer Stella Mozgawa slipping into place ahead of her more recent tenure in Warpaint.

‘Be My Friend’ will be available for download on all major online stores come May 17.

Be My Friend comes straight out of the gate in all of it's Pop goodness. Fuzzy guitars, endearing synths and relatable lyrics are just some of what to expect. Dean effortlessly creates some of the catchiest melodies you will hear. This is Pop perfection from start to finish - press play and take a dynamic ride.
