TUNE Lila Tristram - Our Friends
This song is about the pain of never truly being able to make other people happy.” Lila’s personal reflections on the song indicate how much thought went into the lyricism, “When you really think about it, it’s both kind of devastating and freeing at the same time.”
The music creates a sense of stark emptiness, laying the foundations for her hypnotic yet passionate vocal delivery. As the song develops, eerie synths fill the empty landscape like thick clouds, woven together with a static electricity panning from left to right; the desolation of heavy rainfall or the hope of a cheering crowd. Sonically, this song encompasses the haunting, timeless quality of early Marika Hackman, and the poetic nature of Aldous Harding, another of her major influences.
