The follow up to debut single proper ‘Four Wheel Drive’, ‘Sand Fight’ is something of a mosaic effort garnered from their formative years. Folly Group explain: “‘Sand Fight’ was a total collaboration. We threw lyrical ideas and musical motifs at each other, and a song emerged that was, both lyrically and musically, a bit of an ode to childhood and being carefree. It became a collage made of symbols and signifiers of being young - both the positive experiences and myriad anxieties. It was one of the first tracks we wrote together, so to release it feels like a farewell to a formative sound and period in the same way.”

Folly Group’s incendiary ‘Four Wheel Drive’ was heavily supported at UK radio by the likes of Jack Saunders and Gemma Bradley at BBC Radio 1, Tom Ravenscroft, Tom Robinson, and Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 6 Music, Matt Wilkinson at Apple Music 1, and John Kennedy Radio X (where the track was X-Posure playlisted), while Lauren Laverne at BBC Radio 6 Music threw her support behind the band’s previous release ‘Fashionista’. ‘Four Wheel Drive’ also drew praise from DIY, Dork, The Independent, NME, The Line Of Best Fit, and HERO amongst others. 


Folly Group have cultivated a loyal underground following since surfacing in January last year; live streaming from lockdown for the likes of Quarantunes, featuring on the Live at The Windmill (alongside Kae Tempest, black midi, Shame, PVA & more) and Slow Dance ‘20 compilations, landing a spot on NME’s annual list of 100 artists on the rise, being made a Next Wave tip on Jack Saunders’ influential BBC Radio 1 show - and all the while relentlessly writing and recording further new material for release later this year via So Young Records.
