Brilliant Irish four-piece The Academic have shared their brand new cut, ‘Why Can’t We Be Friends?’, taken from the forthcoming debut LP ‘Tales From The Backseat’ due out on January 12th. The new track, that follows up to ‘Permanent Vacation’ takes once again aim to the turbulence of growing into your twenties, with the inevitable acceptance of moving towards adulthood.
The new number is a funk-soaked take focused on volatile romance and encompasses all the hallmarks of a band predicted to make it through 2018 as one of the “next big things”. The tracks was recorded in LA with producer Tim Pagnotta (Dreamcar, Wilde Belle, Saint Motel) and is one of the hottest pieces presented by the band on tour supporting The Kooks this month.
