Weakened Friends share new single "Peel" from forthcoming album
Common Blah is the debut full-length by Portland, Maine’s Weakened Friends. Founded by songwriter Sonia Sturino, bassist Annie Hoffman, and drummer Cam Jones in 2015, the trio is a low pressure outlet for emotionally volatile music.
The band have just shared their latest single "Peel" described as " a roaring song about comparing yourself to everyone else around you and internalizing all of those perceived inadequacies."
Sonia Sturino explains: “The lyrics of "Peel" are pretty self explanatory, especially to anyone who’s ever suffered from panic attacks or anxiety attacks. The feeling like you’re drowning or
just stuck in this awful place inside your own head that you can’t break out of regardless of how hard you try. The feeling of ruining a good moment and having it totally be out of your own
control. That being said "Peel" is probably the fuzziest and loudest track on the record which makes it super fun to play, so it’s a nice reward to have a song like this to go to even if it’s subject
matter stems out of the worst feelings I have."
"Peel" is the third single released from the album and follows "Blue Again" and "Hate Mail" (feat. J Mascis).
