FJ Law, the solo project of songwriter and producer Danny Hall has released his debut single 'friends' via 225 Records.
Fusing together acoustic singer / songwriter roots with lo-fi and bedroom pop beats, 'friends' is a smooth and mellow track which is deftly produced with wholesome vocals. It's intimate with delicate electronic beats, a dreamy chorus and heart on sleeve vocals which are filled with emotion and honesty and will resonate with listeners. FJ has triumphed with the perfect debut which really showcases his talent.
“I was in the beginning of a pretty heavy break up. We knew it had finished but it was hard to sink in. The song is about anger, betrayal and the explosive emotional expression of ‘F*CK YOU’ to both your “friend” and your ex who you feel betrayed you. The release of the chorus in the song mirrors the release of emotion I was feeling after I saw my ex and a friend leave a bar together – “Are you going for afters? I know you’re going for afters.” I tried to mask my upset and dismiss my anger by putting on a brave, sarcastic face, and followed an adrenaline fuelled pursuit to get absolutely wasted alone. Hoping drink by drink it would soften the blow. It did…but the elephant never left the room.”
Working alongside the likes of Nina Nesbitt and Kwassa, FJ Law has already gained support from BBC Radio 1's Phil Taggart who picked his unreleased track 'State To State' for his 'Chillest Show' whilst another track found it's way onto the BBC Hotlist after uploading it to BBC Introducing.
