“The visible effect made on a surface by pressure”

MOBY RICH teams up with Bishop Briggs on new single ‘friends*’

Listen to ‘friends*: HERE


Alt-pop duo Moby Rich enlists multiplatinum-selling star Bishop Briggs for their new single, ‘friends*’. The pair—Maxwell Joseph and Connor Pledger—relocated to LA from Indianapolis and Atlanta in search of, well, anything. In a moment of synergy, Connor began attending open mic nights around the town in which Maxwell was living. The pair serendipitously met, began writing together, and realised an identifiable sound between the two them. Writing the majority of their tracks on acoustic guitar, they sing every song in unison, a sort of whole-is-greater-than-the-sum-of-parts attitude, which speaks volumes of their close, almost twin-like, friendship.

Of the collaboration with Bishop Briggs, Moby Rich says, “When we wrote ‘friends*’ with Bishop, it was our first time meeting her. Sometimes sessions have a way of just giving you a song, and the second we started writing, the words and melodies just started to flow. It’s pretty wild when we get to work with people that we’ve heard on the radio so many times. It’s also nice when they are super chill and wholly authentic.”

Bishop Briggs says “‘friends*’ describes the frustrating yet beautiful cycle of disappointment, hope, bliss, chaos, addiction and love. Wanting something you can’t have can be very alluring and can consume your every thought. I had been singing ‘I hate that I want to be more than friends’ when I was briefly reminded of a guy friend of mine who I previously felt that way for. I was reminded of all the moments I looked far too deeply into and the memories I replayed in my mind in the hopes of us being something more. I am a big fan of Moby Rich, and I reached out to them directly to see if they would have any interest in writing! Thankfully, they were up for it.”

“friends*” follows Moby Rich’s latest release “Get High”—listen to the song HERE! The Los Angeles-based duo recently announced they will join Weathers on their “Our Little Secret” North American tour later this year. Moby Rich has amassed over 30 million-plus streams to date and received praise from Billboard, Funny Or Die, Noisey, Alt Press, Ones To Watch and more.
