Friend of a Friend is an American art rock banner that contemporarily dips into the ethos of 70s/80s folk, post rock, and alternative. Think Fiona Apple, Maude Maggart, and Alanis Morissette. Their narratives and soundscapes are intentionally askew, inlaid with slight absurdities, and a strange melancholy. It is slow-brewed, detailed with consciousness, memory, and existential malady. Friend of a friend is duo Claire Molek and Jason Savsan.

Their latest release is the FACILITIES album. The twelve-song collection has a youthful touch that plays liberatingly into a more mature narrative. You might sense a juvenile sense of delusion, unclarity, and melodrama that also transfers to an adult context. Taken from this album is ‘Nothingforme’. The track opens with a retro-modern folk bracket. Infiltrated with afrobeats, the glinting acoustics spark off the vocal drift. The frame is blurred with layers of harmonies, shoegaze sensibilities, and post rock pieces.

Then it drops off, ascending again with ethereal folk vocals, mystical ambiences, and disarming melodic whistles. As you go through these stages of consciousness, the reality is blurred into illusions and dream spheres. The melancholy forms like a sense of déjà vu, surreal, abstract, and mysterious. Listen Now!

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
