Do you remember that rare moment in high school where everything, including the future, seemed promising beyond belief? Where regardless of your academic standings or hormonal altercations with the parental unit, your life as you knew it then was content and all you needed was the Bonnie to your Clyde.
If you could bottle up those feelings of lustful hallucinations and teenage intoxication, you’d get the music produced by newcomer’s Ladyfrnd. Consisting of Peter Ricq (Humans, Gang Signs) and his actual lady love Yuki Holland.
Yes, their self-titled debut of five songs is simple but within their simplicity lays pure brilliance. The opening track is hauntingly beautiful, as you play witness to a couple fighting over the consequences that ultimately come from taking your career on the road. The rest of the EP plays the same way. It tells a story of a young couple living through a storybook romance and letting the outside world witness the complications that follow. It’s raw, heartbreaking and at the very end, unbelievably inspiring.
For all you single girls out there, I highly suggest buying a pint of Ben and Jerry’s before you listen to this. Download the pull EP here.
