Chicago's response to The Wonder Years. If TWY came from Illinois then they would be called Real Friends; this band has blown up over the last few months and they just keep getting better. Their latest EP, although only offering 3 new tracks, shows flawless consistency in quality. Incredibly excited to see what Real Friends do with a debut album; expect it to be up there with the genre's greatests - Under Soil and Dirt, Suburbia, Floral Green, etc. The new landscape pop punk scene is looking strong right now and Real Friends are already a staple in it.
