Brett and James met while working retail in LA and began to realize they each brought something to the table musically that the other could appreciate. They describe their hypnotic production as a combination of the twosome’s affection for 80s-styled pop.
The pair signed on with Columbia Records and subsequently released their debut EP, Truce, in September 2016.
FRENSHIP’s platinum-selling single “Capsize” was one of the most viral hits of 2016, surpassing 20 million streams in its first month and collecting over 400 million to date. Spotify crowned them #2 Breakout Artist of the year due to the song’s chart performance. The duo returned with their rhythmic follow up single “1000 Nights,” accompanied by a cinematic, wilderness-themed video.
In 2017, FRENSHIP toured through Europe and the Eastern US with their friends Bastille. They played to thousands of energetic festival-goers at Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Life is Beautiful, and many more. This Fall, they hit select cities on their own headlining tour.
