Emerging from the rooftops of Chicago in 2007, Netherfriends are that bastard-psych-pop-catchy as hell band that you’ve been searching for. They signed with indie label Emergency Umbrella in 2009 and released their debut 6 song EP “Calling You Out,” fused heavily layered arrangements with group sing-a-longs, spare pianos, synths, glockenspiels and other hard to place, but familiar sounds. The three-piece psychedelic pop band grabbed some early spark and attention from places like Blender and RCRD LBL and have played at both SXSW in Austin and CMJ in New York City.
The band released their first full length album “Barry and Sherry” in 2010 via Lateral Label and Emergency Umbrella, followed by “Alap,” an ambient album, and “Angry East Coast 7”,” the first release of the band’s 50 songs/50 states project in 2011. Netherfriends currently features Shawn Rosenblatt (vocals, guitar, keys, samples) and a rotating cast of other musicians.
