A Friend In London was formed in 2005 when four guys met at a boarding school in Vostrup, Denmark. From day one the hunt for powerful and catchy melodies was the main focus of the band. Through the past years the band has been touring Denmark with more than 100 shows refining the expression of their work. The music combines the simplicity of boyband pop with the complexity of British influenced indie rock backed by powerful choir arrangements.
In 2008 A Friend In London won the European final of the Bodog Million Dollar Battle of the Bands, with more than 40,000 bands from around the world participating. This event ignited a spark for the band in Canada and since 2009 there has been two successful tours in the state of Ontario, including shows at NXNE (North by NorthEast) 2009 and Canadian Music Week 2010 as well as a performance at Breakfast TV, no.1 morning show in Toronto.
2011 will be a defining year for A Friend In London. The band has confirmed a slot at the forthcoming Canadian Music Week launching another Canadian spring tour in conjunction with this performance. Alongside the expansive Canadian activity the preparations for the anticipated debut album have also been kicked off with album release set in 2011.
