Introducing Special Friends: the new side project from Gang Of Youths’ drummer, Donnie Borzestowski.
The collective of legitimate lifelong friends have announced themselves upon the world today via their debut single ‘Big Sur’, a dreamy concoction of verby indie rock produced and mixed by long-time collaborator Luke O’Dea, which tbh isn’t too far removed from the upliftingly melancholy GOY sound we all know and love.
According to a statement from the band, the song “touches on the regret and mixed feelings that come after you complete a significant phase in your life, and the temptation to right the wrongs of the past”.
And it’s apparently just the first taste of plenty more new music on the horizon from the group, who have plans for an EP in the not-too-distant future.
