Friend comes to us as a track full of juxtaposition of sorts as it presents itself in a sea of buoyant musical elements and yet, it is full of emotional weight. The totality of the lyrics revolves around toxic friendships. In a way, the jovial atmosphere implies the sense of bliss created by the kicking out of the unhealthy relationship from one’s life.
Produced by FRND, the track’s chorus has a catchy, singable melody that will seep into your brain until it turns into a pleasant earworm that you wouldn’t mind playing on any good day. But more than the ultra-positive summery vibe the tone carries, its funky future beats in mid-tempo give you something to bounce to.
