Get to Know 'Shiny' Sibling Duo Between Friends With These 10 Fun Facts! (Exclusive)

Between Friends is one of the exciting new acts on the music scene, and we want Just Jared readers to get to know them even better!

The LA-based brother-sister duo, individually Savannah and Brandon Hudson just dropped their 5-track mixtape on Friday (February 12) called tape 001, the first in a series of three releases leading up to a full project this summer.

The mixtape also includes their new single, “shiny.”

“‘Shiny,’ in a way, is a transition to another side of our personalities. As creatives, we can get super blocked up being ourselves all the time. We wanted to put metaphorical masks on and write as something else. To us the most exciting thing about all of this is weaving out of body and embracing a new sort of confidence,” they said of the track.

“For our new project we were very fascinated and inspired by lost formats and things that we consistently overlook in our fast moving 21st century. When we conceptualized our mixtape, our number one source of visual inspiration was found in old storage boxes in our garage. Old VHS cameras, tapes, cassettes, CDs, old boom-boxes, etc. For the ‘shiny’ music video we wanted to tap into scenes in LA that we constantly overlook on a daily basis. Skate parks underneath highway bridges in downtown LA, brake lights from cars on the freeway, our favorite video FX shop on the east side, and moments in our car – considering majority of our year was spent driving around an empty city,” they went on to say.

“We were fortunate enough to work with our friend Kevin Clark on this video. Our times shooting together were casual and on the spot. He purchased spy cameras online along with two rolls of film and we just kinda improvised the rest. There was a moment while shooting underneath a bridge in DTLA where we saw an early 2000’s Kawasaki motorbike. Naturally, we thought it was beautifully fitting and the owner of the bike said we could use it. We ended up cruising around the parking lot shooting b-roll in ski masks. The definition of run-n-gun.”

  • 6. We love to drive. Oddly it’s one of our favorite past times. When we feel creatively exhausted or looking for some serenity, we almost always get in the car and drive around.Cars have always been a huge inspiration to us. If cars could talk. So many situations, conversations, moments in between happen inside.
  • 7. Brandon won’t stop buying cheap old synths on eBay. Anything that makes even somewhat of a strange noise has found its way into the studio. Maybe we’ll do a yard sale one day.
  • 8. We wanna design stuff. Give us a place, an item, a budget and please let us.
  • 9. We love crate digging and discovering music we’ve never heard before. Another one of our favorite past times is making playlists. For friends, different moods, we have absolutely polluted our Spotify accounts with way too many. Finding a record you firmly believe none of your friends have ever heard and then playing it for them is euphoric.
  • 10. We are about to release a lot of new music. we took some time after our last release to really hone in on what we wanted the future of BF to sound like and now we are ready to let it go into the internet.
