Formation - A Friend

Proof that the most instinctive of moves can change everything.

Proof that the most instinctive of moves can change everything.



Banger



Formation’s rise continues to be a wonderful sight to see. Shimmering into view with that white label EP a few years ago and stepping things up each and every release, what they manage to accomplish is a silencing of everything around them. Listening to Formation is one that makes you forget about the coffee in your hand, or the email count on your inbox - but instead makes community seem effortless. We’ve been shown the potent heights and breakdowns of ‘Pleasure’, ‘Drugs’ and ‘Powerful People’ but ‘A Friend’ is something else.

Immediately chiming and rhythmic in its ambitions, it’s the sound of a band who know the power they possess, and deliver it in such a moreish manner that it’s irresistible to resist. Taking cowbell clicks, lifting synths and swift emotional pulls and blending it into the milkshake of a lifetime, it’s a journey through the visceral and infectious grooves that have taken Formation to the top. As the track blossoms into a spectacular portrait of indietronic heights, there’s left no doubt as to how vital this band are - locking into a journey that combines love, hate, fear and hope in a manner that no words could ever pay justice to.

‘A Friend’ is Formation in all their dazzling spontaneous glory, and proof that the most instinctive of moves can change everything. Jamie Muir
