Tribe Friday is a band of guitar slinging emo kids from the woods of Sweden who marry the rugged indie rock dancehall sounds of the early 2000s with Gen Z post-pandemic party vibe bliss. Upbeat songs about self deprication, identity, confusion, love and death are anchored by sarcasm, wit and charm.
Swedish bubblegum emo-pop band Tribe Friday release new single “Swimsuit”. As the first step into the Tribe Friday’s 2023 realm and mastered by Stephen Marcussen (The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Cher), Swimsuit is a song about survivor's guilt. The track details the signs one would later see when reflecting on loss and examining one’s role in the situation. Starting from the seed of a catchy guitar riff, the song looks back in order to be a better friend going forward, with pop heart and soul through each strum. The introspective track precedes their upcoming US performances, hitting New York City, Los Angeles and this year’s South by Southwest Music Festival. In May the band will embark on a German tour (see dates attached below).
