What started out with an anthem for browser game Bubble Boom, turned out to be a highly enthusiastic and active touring band in the form of three Lo-Fi goddesses Just Friends And Lovers. With already a long list of releases on Wilhelm Show Me The Major Label, Fettkakao and dozens of other compilations, the threesome finally united in Vienna during 2017 to celebrate with a 7“ on Numavi Records. Taken from that EP is “Manners”, a delicious mashup of poppy post-punk, written and performed by Lina Gärtner, Magdalena Gasser, Veronika Adamski. The DIY clip for “Manners” was shot by regular videographer Theresa Adamski on a bright Viennese autumn day, with the idea of making all three band members run with an attitude.
Director Theresa is also related with Just Friends and Lovers in various ways: family-wise she is the sister of Veronika, who sings the lead vocals and plays bass in “Manners”, band-wise she and Lina, who plays guitar in the song, are mates in the art punk project “Lady Lynch”.
“Manners” was recorded & mixed by Christian Sundl (Lady Lynch drummer, wilhelm show me the major label) and mastered by Mario Zangl (numavi records, bassist of Mile Me Deaf, Melt Downer, Bird of the year).
