Friends (Under the Influence) – Majik on Paralysed / Friends (Under the Influence) – Single

  1. At some point I might have to look up a translation of the lyrics here. I’m a little curious.
  2. May or may not occasionally just crank the volume and sing along to this at the top of my voice.
  3. Far and away my favorite new song this month. I have no idea why, but this one hits me right in the heartstrings.
  4. This whole album has big “closeted in the Midwest” energy. Not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
  5. Listen, sometimes you just need some rap that you absolutely can’t understand, okay?
  6. Some of the same sounds as “Bury A Friend,” which unfortunately is less effective here, because, y’know, Billie Eilish is already Billie Eilish, and not pioneering this whole new sound this time around.
  7. A lot of “musical theater” vibes to this one – it’s the key changes.
  8. Somehow I stumbled across a Tiktok where Oh teased this song, and I liked it enough from that that I just threw a reminder in Things, “in two weeks remind me to see if this song is out.” It was!
  9. There’s a sound in here, I think somewhere around 1:20, that reminded me so intensely of Majik that I wound up adding Friends to the list. Man, I miss Majik.
