It's the title of their new single, y'know...
The Academic

Rising Irish band The Academic have shared infectious new single 'Why Can't We Be Friends?'.

The band stormed their way to viral infamy earlier this Autumn, when a Facebook-looping live video was shared by thousands and thousands of fans.

Seizing on this energy, new single 'Why Can't We Be Friends?' is a crisp, ultra-catchy indie pop jammer.

Out now, it's rooted in that chipper guitar line, with the rising vocals lending a slick melodic element to their raucous sound.

A breezy hymn for lazy Autumn days, 'Why Can't We Be Friends?' is out now. Tune in below.

The Academic will release debut album 'Tales From The Backseat' on January 12th.
