“affection” represents what BETWEEN FRIENDS is at heart…a do-it-yourself project from top to bottom, hell bent on avoiding any boundaries or veils, breaking the fourth wall of their little art collective where everyone is invited to join. “affection is a song very close to us,” the band said of the new song. “At that particular time we made it, we were all individually and collectively going through a major growth period. In every sense, we kept falling back into relationships that weren’t necessarily good for us. Creating it felt like a therapeutic, almost ‘Fleetwood Mac’ way of getting through it.”
With Brandon spearheading production from their home studio while Savannah penned the bulk of the lush melodies and lyrics that ponder truth, love and adolescence, and crafted the visual aspect of the project, from styling to directing to editing to personally sourcing photography from friends. The group have embraced the comfort and transparency in their relationship, letting it bloom into the electronically whimsy and spellbinding harmonies on we just need some time together, a series of singles that build into their debut playlist coming in spring of 2019.
