Nectar - 'Find A New Friend'

  • 2 min read

Perth psychedelic, indie soul band Nectar have revealed their funky new jam ‘Find A New Friend’. Mirroring the laid back vibes of Tame Impala, the track showcases a new sound for the young fourpiece fusing funk and soul grooves with disco influences. The song’s theme centres around the idea of a toxic relationship coming to its natural end.

The chorus to ‘Find A New Friend’ with its distinctive disco-vibe also ushers in a new era of Nectar. The young band unexpectedly found the process super smooth and exciting as they wrote the song casually jamming the chorus in rehearsal. 

Speaking about the new single, the band explained, “Find A New Friend is a toxic tale from beginning to end of an obstructive relationship where with it’s close you realise the only healthy thing to do was move on. The story is cohesively told over a bright and euphoric instrumental slowly but surely building up to the climax where the person finally “moves on” over intense and washy sounds. When compared to its content and more satiated counterpart 'Found A New Friend', you can start to see how things can change for the better after you leave an obstructive relationship, and the light that can bloom in your life from that person”

Find A New Friend’ was recorded at Tone City Recording Studio by noted producer Sam Ford (Pond, Abbe May). For the demo process, the band went away to Matt’s old hometown in Leeman WA and had a fun weekend demoing a bunch of songs, whilst also celebrating Jac’s birthday.

Nectar are currently signed to Perth’s Tone City Records, the ever growing stable of artists under the guidance of Sam Ford (Supathick, DICE, Romeo Walker). They’ve released 4 singles in the past year including this year’s “Waiting On The World Won't Work’, scoring playlist support from Spotify’s (Local Noise, Indie Arrivals, Coast to Coast).
