American electronic dance duo Two Friends craft bright, upbeat anthems similar to Jonas Blue, the Chainsmokers, Louis the Child, and Autograf. True to their name, the project was created by Eli Sones and Matthew Halper, who have been friends since middle school. They began producing together at the end of high school, with Halper bringing his experience with guitar, choir, and music theory to Sones' hip-hop DJ'ing. Even when they parted ways to attend college, they continued to record together, releasing remixes and airing a mix series called Friendly Sessions. In 2013, they issued their debut EP, You (Me), which featured "Feel Me" with Priyanka Atreya and "Your Song" with I Am Lightyear. A pair of singles with Jeff Sontag ("Sedated" and "Brighter") followed, echoing the house anthems of Swedish House Mafia. In 2014, they released another pair of collaborations (this time with Breach the Summit), "Our Names in Lights" and "Long Way Home." After graduating college in 2015, they returned with the rock-tinged singles "Forever" and "Overdose" in 2016. Their second EP, Out of Love, arrived on Spinnin' Records the next year, followed by the singles "Emily," "While We're Dreaming," and "Just a Kid." ~ Neil Z. Yeung~ Rovi
