Sydney-based Valencia James is back with a new single Friend I Can’t Keep. Back out of the shadows after her debut EP Light & Shade and in the midst of a pandemic, Valencia now dives into more playful soundscapes while retaining her brand of edge and sarcasm.
Valencia makes really good music. The song features cool guitar work, sublime vocals, and powerful hooks.
Lyrically, the story is captivating. Friend I Can’t Keep questions the space between love and lust, friendship and romance. “Where is the line and when do you know when it’s been crossed?” Valencia muses, daringly exploring emotions that not everyone is comfortable talking about.
James has so much talent. She’s a real artist through and through. Friend I Can’t Keep deserves 5 stars. Fantastic piece of work.
