Friends may seem like a basic name, but to an extent, their pop lyrics ("I want to be your friend/I want to ask your advice on a weekday/Want to plan something nice for the weekend," from "Friend Crush") speak to their hyper-awareness of the social dynamics of DIY music communities— particularly the community currently burgeoning underground in Brooklyn's makeshift venues and art spaces. "It's definitely influenced the way that the band has grown and the way I've performed," she says. "Something about there being such a strong sense of community. I love the idea of us all being friends, putting on shows . . . everybody playing for each other and creating a world of our own."
