The Alternative Pop duo BETWEEN FRIENDS have just shared their long-awaited debut album I Love My Girl, She’s My Boy, along with a new video for “Self destruct”. Delivering some of their most intimate songwriting to date, BETWEEN FRIENDS‘ debut album was produced by Luka Kloser of Max Martin’s MXM team and boasts features from Teezo Touchdown and EDEN as well as vocals from Bakar. On their latest single, “Self destruct”, Savannah & Brandon deliver a reflective performance as they work through the aftermath of a breakup—“It was a bad night, yeah, I saw you on a first date / Didn’t think I was someone you could replace / My bad, might have loved you just to feel safe”, Savannah sings over the acoustic riff opening the track. Having exploded in popularity during the pandemic, racking up more than 700 Million Streams and garnering critical acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, The FADER, V Magazine, and others, the sibling duo BETWEEN FRIENDS are excited to usher in a new IRL era with their debut album I Love My Girl, She’s My Boy and upcoming 24 date North American tour this October.
BETWEEN FRIENDS’ long-awaited debut album I Love My Girl, She’s My Boy is a project that has been 10 years in the making. Lead by a string of deeply intimate and poppy singles like “Bruise” (6M+ Streams), “Redlight” (feat. Teezo Touchdown), “What’s up”, “Smiley” & “Haircut”, the new album is their most vulnerable release to date. With the songs and even the album’s title directly inspired by the duo’s real-life experiences, I love my girl she’s my boy embraces all the difficult and challenging aspects of post-pandemic life faced by many Gen Z’ers—from past relationships and lessons learned in love to finding freedom through expression in an increasingly online society. Packed with ultra-relatable lyricism and heartfelt songwriting, the album’s sonic palette and textures are bright and energetic, embracing nostalgic ‘90s teen-movie-esque soundscapes like a pair of rose-colored glasses donned while peering out at an often imperfect and complicated world.
