Following on from their well-received EP No Chill, Belfast based band R51 have released their first single of 2017 “Heavy Friends”.
The single is a staple of that pop/alternative rock sound we have come to know from these guys. The song is very memorable with its quirky intro, quality harmonies and fantastic lead vocals.
I did feel the breakdown about two minutes in threw me off a bit and I thought the track had skipped to something else. However, after listening to it a few more times I feel it added another dimension to the track and reiterated their unique sound we have come to love.
“Heavy Friends” is incredibly fun and one I personally can’t wait to jump and sing to at Sunflowerfest this year.
