New Music | Weekend Friends – Good Friend

By Kieran Webber

The Portland, Maine based punk/alt-rock outfit have today released the emotive and infectious single ‘Good Friend’ which taken from their debut full-length ‘Common Blah’.

‘Good Friend’ is a visceral track that explores the emotional toll of a loss of a friend, the heartache and upset is heard through Sturino’s sharp vocals. This is backed up by a meaty riff section that is complemented by a relentless barrage of percussion. At its core it is deeply infectious and the fantastic songwriting is really on show.

Speaking about the single songwriter Sonia Sturino explains:

“Good friend is actually about something pretty dark, a few years ago our home town music community was pretty shook after the passing of a friend of ours from addiction. It’s really weird now to picture that person in rooms and places that you know you’ll never see them in again, and the feeling that you could have done more at the time to help. I’m a pretty introverted person, but I’m trying to be better about reaching out to friends and making time for them especially when they’re going through something heavy. This song is essentially about doing exactly that.”
