Indie pop duo FRENSHIP are thrilled to release their new single “Cry” that is out now.
FRENSHIP says, “Cry embodies a real fuck it moment in our songwriting. We typically comb our lyrics obsessively but with this one we stepped away from the large perspective writing and focused on real granular feelings. Before the session with our buddy Hazy Eyes, Brett stubbed his toe after a bad day and it just about brought him to tears. The song spun off from there and we focused on that moment when the tears arrive and how therapeutic a good cry can be. As the songs says, ‘cry let it out, fuck the bigger picture’ just feels good sometimes. Hopefully this song is your nudge to let go, have a good cry and move on.”
In support of their new music the band is heading on tour starting November 9th in Seattle, WA at Madame Lou’s and then ending December 13 in Washington, DC at DC9. See all tour dates below.
FRENSHIP (James Sunderland and Brett Hite) make wide-angle pop songs that are realized in the moment, shaped by diverse inspirations: the brash, bold innocence of 80s pop; the experimental streak of 90s hip-hop; and, not to mention, the songwriting chops of stadium-filling superstars. Their songs are painted in bold, bright colors, packed with harmonies and unshakeable hooks that connect with a global audience. FRENSHIP’s debut album Vacation, released May 17, 2019, via Counter Records (part of the Ninja Tune family), followed the explosive interest which has greeted the music they have released so far, including the 2016 global hit “Capsize” with Emily Warren.
FRENSHIP showcases with a renewed sense of energy and creativity full of the undeniable melodies fans have found to know and love.
