The charming Los Angeles-based duo, BETWEEN FRIENDS have just released their new single “Smiley” along with its accompanying music video. The new record is a continuation of their string of vibrant yet emotive singles that they’ve been releasing throughout the year – giving a glimpse into their renewed sound to match with their cleverly relatable lyrics. “Smiley” is a slow-burning release from BETWEEN FRIENDS, as they unite to deliver soothing vocals centered around expressing their intimate feelings delivered through their eccentric lyricism. “I really wanna tell you this / You’re like a song I can’t resist / I can’t believe you’re just for me”, Savannah sings to open the new track over the low-key guitar loop – once the electronic drums kick in behind them, the duo continues to work through expressing their love in spirited deliveries. With their ear for eclectic production and heartfelt songwriting abilities taking center stage on “Smiley”, BETWEEN FRIENDS are continuing to construct their world-building sound using their personalized qualities.
BETWEEN FRIENDS‘ new single “Smiley” follows their other recently-released tracks “What’s Up” “Redlight” featuring Teezo Touchdown and “Bruise.” All four singles find the duo experimenting with new sounds and song structures not heard on their earlier releases, which is a testament to their shared artistic evolution that they’re continuing to hone in on. Ever since 2018, the sibling duo has amassed an impressive fanbase of dedicated listeners, racking up more than half a billion streams thanks to their knack for catchy songwriting, cinematic-sounding production, and uniquely empathetic lyrics. With critical acclaim from publications like Rolling Stone, The FADER and V Magazine as well as editorial inclusions on Spotify’s “Essential Indie”, “Bedroom Pop”, and “Indie Pop” playlists, BETWEEN FRIENDS are on a monumental run, and showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Having recently wrapped a number of sold-out shows in cities from Brooklyn to Chicago, Los Angeles, and Toronto, BETWEEN FRIENDS are continuing to usher in their new era with the release of yet another vibrant single in “Smiley”.
