If you’re searching for your next bedroom pop obsession, look no further than mazie. Originally from Baltimore, mazie is ready to introduce you to her world of playful melodies juxtaposed with questionable lyrics. If you’re feeling even the slightest bit lonely, allow mazie to cure you in under two minutes with her lovely new single, “no friends.”
There’s no better time than now–when we’re all stuck inside and can only rely on technology to see our friends–for mazie to release such a relatable tune. Drenched with animated xylophones and carefree vocals, “no friends” showcases mazie’s ability to craft a sonically lighthearted track contrasted by darker lyricism. With just one listen of “no friends,” we have the utmost confidence that mazie will continue to impress us for years to come.
On “no friends,” mazie shared,
“Elie [Rizk] and I made this song because college can be a really isolating time when you’re pursuing something outside of your education (music). Even though sometimes I do feel like I have no friends, I also can’t take myself seriously enough to write a song that doesn’t make fun of how I’m feeling. I really love to be self-deprecating and ‘no friends’ really embodies how I feel being a social (yet somehow) lonely person.”
