Brand New Friend Unveil New Video

Brand New Friend have dropped the new video for the title track off their upcoming debut album ‘Seatbelts For Aeroplanes’.

The video for ‘Seatbelts For Aeroplanes’ was shot at the recent Belfast and Dublin gigs whilst supporting Feeder and perfectly encapsulates the youthful energy, fun and thrill of a Brand New Friend gig.

Check it out below:



”Seatbelts For Aeroplanes” is a song about two people desperately trying to keep a relationship alive” explains vocalist Taylor. “The opening line (where the song and the record gets its title!) comes from an off the cuff remark my little brother made on a flight home from Newcastle. He turned to me and asked ”What’s the point of having a seatbelt on an aeroplane? It’s hardly going to save anyone’s life if we fall out of the sky”. I just thought I’m having that!. It became the central metaphor for the whole song. I was going through a bad break-up at the time and I remember thinking that even if I can’t be with that person forever, I’d love to at least be a happy memory for them one day”.


This is the second single from the album to come out, following the track ‘Girl’ which received great airplay from Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart on Radio 1, John Kennedy on Radio X and 6Music’s Steve Lamacq.

‘Seatbelts For Aeroplanes’ is released via Xtra Mile Recordings on Friday (April 27th).
