A BAND A DAY WITH NXNE: FRIENDS
• Both videos for “I’m His Girl” and “Friend Crush” were co-directed by lead singer/lyricist Samantha Urbani.
• The band was originally known as Perpetual Crush. Now that’s the title of one of their songs.
• Samantha and Lesley are lifelong… friends, having met at age seven at school. Samantha, Nikki and Matt all worked together at Angelica Kitchen, a vegan cafe in Manhattan. Oliver attended Samantha’s “wild satanic” house parties, and that’s how friends became Friends.
Friends will be there for you during NXNE 2012. Visit nxne.com/2012/friends for more information.
