Rising U.K. outfit Make Friends is out with new music this week.

The Bristol-based four-piece has shared a glowing, infectious new track called "Fever," which follows a string of previous singles. The new cut comes along with great news, as they've confirmed their new Is This Real EP, which will be out on Nov. 26. 

"We began writing 'Fever' around the time restrictions were beginning to lift after the first lockdown," says the band. "The song is about the uncertainty of that period and the internal struggles of deciding whether it was okay to start going back to some form of normality. After being stuck inside for so long, the idea of being able to do the things you love again sounded appealing, but there was a stigma attached to it that made it feel wrong, despite what we were being told."
