Before he started his solo venture, Victoria-based Aidan Knight has performed and recorded with many musicians, including Hannah Georgas and Dan Mangan. He also has co-founded the label, Adventure Boys Club, under which he released his debut album "Versicolour" in 2010. Afterwards, he got himself a band and named them The Friendly Friends. Their collaboration extended from touring to the recording of this new record "Small Reveal". A chamber-pop-ish glow seeps through as the horns and strings occasionally take up the stage, as his folky songs get the chance to branch out to the experimental realm. As Knight commented on the collaboration, "They're impossible; Only happening because of those 5 people in that certain space. I think the most powerful ideas are the ones that we never could have expected." The result is a charming and shimmering album. Hail to the band sound.
