On the making of Nothing But Love, vocalist Sam Kless explains:
“We set out to make something that encouraged people to believe in themselves. Something that stood for embracing vulnerability, compassion and self-confidence. Something that people could dance to, and something we could show our parents. After three years of writing I truly believe we accomplished that goal. We just wanted to make everyone who ever believed in us proud.”
With excitement towards Just Friends’ future with Pure Noise Records, Kless shares:
“It’s unreal. We still look around in awe and think ‘wow we are really here.’ Having people who invest not only in your band but you as people is a feeling I cannot describe. Jake and company have taught us so much and are helping us grow in ways I never thought we would be able to. We are beyond thankful they took a chance on us.”
