"An achingly vulnerable and intimate outpouring of emotionally stirring indie pop, Bestfriend’s “Someplace Else” is a catchy, cathartic daydream come to life in song."

Under The Radar

"Canadian duo Bestfriend have always dealt in intricately crafted slices of sun-drenched nostalgia. New single "Hannah in the City" is no exception
The Line of Best Fit

"Creating dreamy songs that turn seemingly personal, lonely experiences into universal ones – Bestfriend is something special"

"The sweet, yet angsty new track sees Bestfriend at their most relatable. The transportive, nostalgic new single is all about missed opportunities. “Hannah In The City” sees the band’s Stacy Kim and Kaelan Geoffrey delivering bittersweet, tender bedroom pop melodies."

"Known for their storytelling breadth and melodic nuances... the duo’s newest single has an upbeat, entrancing melody with lyrics that play on the nostalgia of the past and the complexities of maneuvering one’s youth"
Vents Magazine

"Pulling our strings of nostalgia, Bestfriend wrap us up with starry-eyed layers of pop as they walk us down the memory lane of our youth"


"The silky tones of Stacy Kim’s vocals alongside dazzling synths create that immersive dream-pop sound destined for late night drives, and marks really strong potential from a band so early in their career."

"A subtly charming take on indie pop"

Canadian bedroom pop duo Bestfriend are back. After their wildly successful EP, places i've lived, the duo announce a sister EP, places i've left, and share the lead single "Someplace Else," a dreamy bedroom pop bop. Nostalgic, romantic, and sugary sweet, "Someplace Else" is all about crushing on someone, and frankly, "It might be the most purely happy song we have ever written, really," the band notes.

Atwood premiered the single and aptly noted: "Bestfriend’s new single captures the mixed emotions of life’s transitions with stunning warmth and expressive, compelling candor: an achingly vulnerable and intimate outpouring of emotionally stirring indie pop, “Someplace Else” is a catchy daydream come to life in song."

On the single, the duo shares: "Someplace Else is a song about crushes and daydreaming, really. It's about thinking back fondly on time you spent with someone and fantasizing about spending it again. It’s about journaling on a train. It's about puppy love and a summer romance begging to be more. Feeling understood by someone in a way that feels special you don’t recognize. It's optimistic and positive and genuinely happy."

Leading listeners into a dreamy soundscape of lush, atmospheric synths and layers upon layers of rich harmonies, Bestfriend's latest single is the perfect prologue to their forthcoming EP, due out this summer. Written and produced entirely by the duo and mixed by Grammy-nominated Travis Ference (Ariana Grande, Tori Kelly, Imagine Dragons), places i’ve left leaves us where their debut EP places i've lived left us: lovestruck, yearning, and filled with a sun-drenched, bittersweet nostalgia. 

Bestfriend's debut EP, places i've lived, came out last October, to reach critical acclaim from Under The Radar, Line of Best Fit, Earmilk, DIVA, and more. A love letter to all of the experiences and people from Bestfriend’s young adult lives, places i've lived is heavily inspired by storytelling songwriters like Lorde, The National, Big Thief and Julia Jacklin, with production inspired by Bleachers, FINNEAS, The 1975, Rina Sawayama. Created remotely, with Stacy on the west coast and Kaelan in the east, Stacy would write songs, create rough demos and send them to Kaelan who would then produce it from there, passing it back and forth between each other to add/detract elements. Since its release, duo have been featured on Spotify's Lorem, Bedroom Pop, and my life is a movie playlists, amassing over 1,500,000 streams within the first 4 months of release.

Bestfriend Bio:

Bestfriend was half-formed through a mutual friend and half-formed through Instagram DMs in 2018. The indie-pop duo is a culmination of two young artists, Stacy Kim and Kaelan Geoffrey, making music from thousands of miles apart; Stacy in the west, Kaelan in the east.

Through trial and error (and many gigabytes of .wav files sent back and forth), they’ve found their stride in dreamy, story-telling pop songs. Geoffrey's expert use of dreamy, almost euphoric synthesizers paired with Kim's guiding, melodious vocals pulls listeners into a shared space, creating harmony within the themes of uncertainty.

Their latest EP, places i’ve lived, received accolades in the likes of Under The Rader, EARMILK, Exclaim! and The Line of Best Fit, amassing over 1,500,000 streams within the first 4 months of release. places i've lived is a part 1 of a series of letters; these songs are dedicated to the people and places of the young adult lives they are growing out of. places i've lived was written and produced entirely by the duo and mixed by Grammy-nominated Travis Ference (Ariana Grande, Tori Kelly, Imagine Dragons).​

Next up for Bestfriend is the sister EP to places i've lived, aptly named places i've left; their first single, heartfelt indie-pop at its core, "Someplace Else," will be released March 30, 2022.
