FRND – Friend (Original Mix)
Yes, this song by FRND (pronounced Friend) shares the same title as the up-and-coming talent that produced it. Strangely enough the weird amalgamation of melancholy pop vocals and downtempo future bass lines is an ode to the exact opposite of friends. Rather, it’s a catchy, pluck-filled and vocally-driven ode to telling someone who mattered to you to quite simply “go fuck yourself.” The result is something sugary sweet with a sour center. Like a strawberry Starburst fucked a lemon Warhead.
“I wrote “friend” about cutting a toxic person out of your life. You wake up one day and realize how much more enjoyable your life would be if they weren’t in it.”
