Bestfriends, ‘Just Goodbye’ – Free MP3 Download
Fittingly, Chicago electronic indie duo Bestfriends comprises two old pals, Greg Shanahan and Nick Scalise, whose history goes all the way back to preschool. After many a full-band project together, the two decided to cut the fat in this phase of their career as musicians and go with the "two heads are better than five" approach. Drawing influence from acts such as Daft Punk, Jamiroquai, Kavinsky and Prince, Bestfriends compose, produce, record and perform all of their sexified electro-pop themselves, partnering only with a live drummer.
Today's free MP3 download is their debut single, 'Just Goodbye.' "If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples, then you and I will still each have one apple," would-be third member Gregory Bernard Shaw tells Diffuser.fm, explaining the single and the ideology behind the group. "But if you have an idea, and I have an idea, and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas."
