It’s hard not to feel paranoid in today’s world. Between social media and the internet, we’re constantly exposed to stories of betrayal, deceit and just general craziness. And it’s no wonder that our trust issues have skyrocketed in recent years. We’re constantly worried that the people we love might not be who they say they are. It’s a strange world out there, and it seems like we can’t trust anyone anymore. But don’t worry, you’re not the only one with trust issues these days.
NEVE’s debut single guy friends is a vulnerable look at the insecurities we all feel. It talks about how we often project our own insecurities onto others, even when they haven’t done anything wrong. NEVE expresses her fear that the person she likes will end up hurting her like her guy friends did to their partners.
The song’s production has a very interesting sound to it. Almost every layer can be heard in the mix, but the vocals are always upfront. This is a deliberate choice on NEVE’s part, and it pays off in a big way.
