Back in 2022, the duo released their hit single "Wish You Were Here" featuring John K. "I remember locking myself in the basement of my in-laws house and cutting vocals by myself for hours until I got it right," John K shared. "“Wish You Were Here” is a sweet, sad banger. There’s pain and longing in the vocal and tempo in the track. Loved working with Matt and Eli and can’t wait for everyone to hear this. When I saw the music video… I cried."
With a roster of originals and remixes home to the dancefloor, Two Friends' notable hits include "Sedated" and "Brighter" with Jeff Sontag, "Forever", "While We're Dreaming", and "Love Love" with Ferris.
