    Scary Little Friends

    Music

    Scary Little Friends is the rock brainchild of Chris Jones with Charlie Knote on drums and Jon Payne on bass. Chris built his own studio in the Mission district to record their debut album, “From the Beginning”, which features lilting vocals (ala Jeff Buckley) and surfs-up psychedelic guitar; a trademark of the “San Francisco Sound”. Based in both San Francisco with underlying southern soul roots, strong songwriting is really the bread and butter of this band. 

    Scary Little Friend’s live shows combine an understated professionalism with raw talent. They connect with their audience the old-fashioned way by offering authentic heartfelt performances that fulfill our desire to connect. No gimmicks, no tricks. Just great songs about what you were thinking but couldn’t say.

    Since forming in early 2013, the band has quickly risen in the ranks of the Bay Area music scene and was nominated “Band of the Month” by Deli Magazine in August 2014. In September of that same year their music video for “Devil’s Heart” debuted on CMT’s ‘The Edge’. They have been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and Relix Magazine. They made a strong showing in their first year of playing festivals, appearing at Phono del Sol, Whole Earth, Mateel Summer Arts & Music, VertigoFest and Davis Music. They’ve been featured at renowned Bay Area venues such as the Chapel, Brick & Mortar Music Hall, Bottom of the Hill, Rio Theatre, Moe’s Alley, Kuumbwa Jazz, Don Quixote’s, Leo’s Music Club, Harlow’s, HopMonk Tavern, Miners Foundry, Live at Lagunitas, and Grateful Dead hubs Terrapin Crossroads and Sweetwater Music Hall. They have shared the stage with national touring acts Norah Jones, Delta Spirit, Boy & Bear, Chuck Prophet, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, Streets of Laredo, Soft White Sixties, Achilles Wheel, Caravan Palace, Stone Foxes, Jimbo Mathus, Baptist Generals, Debauche, Jail Weddings, Coffis Brothers and Terrapin Crossroads staple Midnight North.

    At just seven songs, the instant sing-along qualities of the upcoming “Silent Revolution” EP (Jan. 29th, Randm Records) by San Francisco-based trio Scary Little Friends fills the “leaves you wanting more” edict perfectly. The record’s lyrics, addressing alienation with less of a generic, transient fist-in-the-air, and more of an impression-leaving palm-to-the-forehead, make the band one to watch in 2016.

    “The internet is the modern battlefield. It is inevitable that that world comes crashing down upon us,” says the group’s leader Chris Jones of the record’s concept. “Perhaps there is hope in the aftermath. Perhaps we will be born anew into a world without technology.”

    It’s this idea that takes the “Silent Revolution” EP away from simple contemplation and complaining about the way things are and into the timeless quality of a record about the way things could be. This is best heard on the single “In This Lifetime,” which Jones refers to as his “revolution song.” Hear it now via BLURT.

    “You’re young, you’re crazy, but you’re not alone,” Jones reminds us when discussing the tune, and in the song itself when he sings, “There’s a season when we reach for higher ground, shatter the lies we believe in. In this lifetime, we all lose our minds, and sometimes love is all we’re searching for.”

    The “Silent Revolution” EP by Scary Little Friends arrives on January 29th, 2016 from Randm Records.
