Andy Frasco & The U.N. shared a new single on Wednesday, titled “Friends (A Song About Friends)”, via Fun Machine Records. This marks the band’s first release since July’s “Dancin’ Around My Grave”, featuring Doom Flamingo and Susto. The single was followed on Friday by a colorful new video for the track.
On this latest single, Frasco reflects on friendship and the important role it plays in our everyday lives; both physically and mentally. Known for their raucousness and disregard for authority, “Friends (A Song About Friends)” highlights a different aspect of the band—their love of life and the good people around them.
From the opening melody of Frasco’s keys, “Friends” lifts the listener’s spirits. The punchiness of the rhythm section, comprised of Floyd Kellogg (bass) and Andee Avila (drums), compliments Shawn Eckels‘ distorted guitar licks, providing a rich sound for the uplifting vocals.
“I’m your friend and you’re my friend, so let’s be friends until the end,” sings Frasco with the help of some backing vocals. With different descriptors for friendship interspersed throughout, Frasco not only pays tribute to his current friends, but also promises to befriend the listener “by the end of this song”.
