Friendship share new single
‘You Might Already Know’
Album Dreamin’ out November 8th via Orindal Records
Philadelphia band Friendship have shared brand new track ‘You Might Already Know’, taken from their second album to be released 8th November on Owen Ashworth’s Orindal Records (Gia Margaret, Claire Cronin, Advance Base).
The contemplative alt-country songs on new album Dreamin’ were recorded to tape in July last year with the help of The Low Anthem’s Jeff Prystowsky, and vocalist Dan Wriggins has shared an essay on his affection for Kath Bloom, and her influence on the new track with The Talkhouse.
“Kath absolutely influenced the songs on Dreamin.’ If I ever write a good, simple love song, I’ll be thanking her. Until then, “You Might Already Know” is the closest I’ve got. I think some of the intervals are lifted from Kath’s vocal world.”
Friendship have retained a loyal cult following since their first offering in 2015, You’re Going to Have to Trust Me, which was released on Burst and Bloom Records that year. An EP on Sleeper Records and another record on their current label Orindal Records followed in 2017 – the acclaimed Shock Out of Season, bringing us forward to late 2019; when they will release their wonderful new album Dreamin’ on 8th November again via Orindal Records.
Lauded songwriter Dan Wriggins’ lyrics touch on both the smallest and the most significant moments that occur within human interaction. He reflects on those moments with a sharp wit, keenly observing and eloquently putting into words the unimportant twists and turns that over time become important – that become our experiences, our relationships, our lives. Dreamin’ offers hope with one hand and takes it away with the other. Immersed within swathes of lush Americana guitars, keys, soft, expressive drums and the haunting wail of a pedal steel, on Dreamin’, Friendship sounds more like Friendship than ever before.
