The brainchild of Austrian singer-songwriter Anna Friedberg, discovered by Lenny Kravitz, who immediately invited her to support him on his European tour, spawned two gold selling solo albums via Universal Music in her native Austria, Germany and Italy. Growing frustration with major label bureaucracy, Anna promptly relocated herself to Berlin and on to a Beat Poet influenced road trip across California, where she fell in love with Joshua Tree, settling there to write poems and songs in isolation.
Holed up in an abandoned hut in the middle of the desert, she called up her friends, Daniel Brandt, from German acoustic techno ensemble Brandt Brauer Frick, and Matthias Biermann, from disco pop band Roosevelt, who both happened to be in LA at the same time. They set up an improvised studio and enthralled by the vastness of the desert, began to jam out a raw and minimalist guitar-driven sound. The first song, recorded on the first night was a desert-rock track called BOOM, with Anna singing into a distorted microphone while creating a pulsing beat on a cowbell.
Inspired by the session in the Joshua Tree, Anna moved to London where she teamed up with a group of immensely talented musicians – Emily Linden, Laura Williams and Cheryl Pinero. In the summer of 2018 the girls, now named FRIEDBERG, began playing a clutch of secret shows that garnered immediate interest from various tastemakers and led to a singles deal with London indie label LGM Records (Goldheart Assembly, Amaroun) and Free Trade Agency (The National, The War On Drugs).
FRIEDBERG released their debut single, Boom, on 8th February 2019.
