Only The Poets showcase dark-pop brilliance with 'I Don't Wanna Be Your Friend'

  • 2 min read

Alt-pop sensations Only The Poets unleash another gem from their upcoming 'One More Night' EP. The highly anticipated track, 'I Don't Wanna Be Your Friend', is now available for streaming and adds to the already thrilling buzz surrounding the EP, slated for a June 7th release.

The 'One More Night' EP promises to be a defining moment for the band. It showcases their signature electrifying synth-pop anthems alongside deeply personal, emotionally charged lyrics. “We’ve taken a lot of our influences from current pop intertwined with Brit-pop and experimented with vocal layers and harmonies,” says frontman Tommy Longhurst. “At the back of our minds, we’re constantly thinking about how these songs will sound live. We really wanted to go for that big, expansive stadium filler sound.”

'I Don't Wanna Be Your Friend' delivers on that promise. With smouldering guitar riffs and Tommy's raw vocals, it establishes a powerful, mature soundscape. The crowd-pleasing chorus and energetic delivery, honed during their massive 30-date European and UK tour, prove its potential to become a live show staple.

Travelling from country to country, the new EP was recorded on the road, the band setting up recording equipment and cutting vocals whilst touring “We’re excited that so much of this EP was done just the four of us, and a lot of the production was done by Marcus (drums) and Clem (guitar). Feeling inspired and recording whilst playing shows was a cool way of working, we’d not done that before.”

Only The Poets have quickly become one of the UK's most exciting live acts. Their independent spirit has propelled them from humble beginnings to sold-out shows across the UK and Europe. Now, with their 'One More Night' EP on the horizon, the band is poised to take their captivating sound and passionate fanbase to even greater heights.
