Friendly Thieves are a four piece band Ryan March (Vocals & Guitar), Oliver Blackford-Jones (Guitar), Morgan Neagle (Bass) and Dan Jones ( Drums) from South Wales. The band has just released their debut single ‘Protest Songs & Singalongs’.
‘Protest Songs & Singalongs’ is brilliant debut single from Friendly Thieves, the vocals and the song itself has a very individual feel and sound to it that adds to the whole song and listening experience. It’s definitely a sing-along song too! It’s an up-tempo song from beginning to end. With a great debut track like this, I am very excited to see what else comes from the band!
With their debut single out, I cough up with the singer Ryan March.
