Based in the former mining town of Neath – or about as far from the hip clubs of London as it’s possible to get without crossing water – Friends Electric are a quartet in their early 20s who formed their first band aged fourteen. Sneaking in to a Soulwax show a few years ago persuaded them to swap their guitars for synths, move together in to a terraced house and do jobs as diverse as delivering pizzas and engineering Abba Mania to fund the purchase of enough equipment to fill their front room.

Friends Electric’s infectious electronic-pop persuaded Frankmusik to snap them up for support and Noisettes to hire them for their first remix. Since then, the band has risen through the ranks with remixes for Kylie, Kelis, We Are Scientists and Ellie Goulding.
