Off the back of her show-stopping anthem ‘If You Loved Me Right’, Beth McCarthy is back with the infectious and relatable ‘Friendship Bracelet’, delivering her sugary-sweet yet edgy vocals over pulsating synths, deep bass and cinematic, plucked strings. Beth’s lyrics are as witty as ever, delivering fierce realities of broken relationships – and burning friendship bracelets. With a hard-hitting chorus that has some serious singalong potential, ‘Friendship Bracelet’ is the second single taken from Beth’s highly-anticipated upcoming EP, boasting production and co-writing credits from Sophie Ackroyd (Nina Nesbitt, Benjamin Francis Leftwich).
Talking about the new track, Beth McCarthy shares: “‘Friendship Bracelet’ expresses the petty and over-dramatic feelings that you experience when you lose your friend to a new relationship and in a way, is like a friend breakup anthem. I’m always unreasonably heartbroken when my friends get into new relationships because I suddenly have to share them with someone that they’re going to love more than me and the friendship will inevitably change. It’s also the worst thing EVER to be a third wheel so I wanted this song to encapsulate all those feelings of resentment, betrayal, sadness, and also the process of reminiscing on old times with that friend and almost grieving them as you know everything will be different now.”
Beth continues: “My favourite lyric in the song is ‘we were growing old alone together, that’s what you wanted ’til you wanted something better’ as I feel like it fully represents that feeling of being left behind in a friendship and is a feeling I’ve experienced too many times!”
