Inflatable Best Friend from Kalamazoo in the USA is the garage rock trio of Austin (Bass) Ian (Drums) and Tanner (Guitar / Vocal).
A hurling fuzzed bass fuses the speakers as Inflatable Best Friend put a psychedelic twist to new wave rock. The percussion relentlessly hammers out an unforgiving pace, whilst the guitar trips out in the corner as the vocal keeps the mixture together. It is the lo-fi unpretentious flippancy with which the trio approach the music that gives it the impressive resonance it holds.
Well received on the touring circuit Inflatable Best Friend is able to take the raw power into the studio to allow those who don’t have the opportunity to see them live to get the feeling they are present. A recent ten track LP Ectoplasmic Puke Wizard looks set to to have a follow-up in short order as the trio are soon to head back in to the studio.
Established for a few years now Inflatable Best Friend have gained confidence in their idiosyncratic space in the world of music and long may they keep carving out their own room.
