Moby Rich has enlisted multiplatinum songstress Bishop Briggs for their new single, “friends*”.
This time around, the band recruits Briggs for a dynamic duet perfect for anybody yearning to make an escape from the friendzone. Their voices go back and forth between bass-heavy production, distorted guitars and emotionally charged screams. It culminates on an infectious chorus, “I hate that I want to be more than friends. Sometimes, losing friends is alright.”
Of the collaboration, Moby Rich says,When we wrote ‘friends*’ with Bishop, it was our first time meeting her. Sometimes sessions have a way of just giving you a song, and the second we started writing, the words and melodies just started to flow. It’s pretty wild when we get to work with people that we’ve heard on the radio so many times. It’s also nice when they are super chill and wholly authentic. For us, ‘friends*’ is a song about having feelings for someone that you’ve only seen as a friend and realizing that you have to eventually tell them how you feel if you want things to move forward or change. Also, the song is about the anxiety and fear of what the response may be to tell that person that you want to be ‘more than friends, knowing very well that it may mess up what you once had.” Briggs added, “‘friends*’ describes the frustrating yet beautiful cycle of disappointment, hope, bliss, chaos, addiction and love. Wanting something you can’t have can be very alluring and can consume your every thought. I had been singing ‘I hate that I want to be more than friends’ when I was briefly reminded of a guy friend of mine who I previously felt that way for. I was reminded of all the moments I looked far too deeply into and the memories I replayed in my mind in the hopes of us being something more.” “friends*” follows Moby Rich’s latest release “Get High.”
