about

Friendship is a Philadelphia-based band currently comprised of Dan Wriggins, Peter Gill, Mike Cormier, Evangeline Krajewski, and Jon Samuels.

Gill, Cormier, and Wriggins, all originally from Maine, began performing as Friendship in 2015, when they shared an apartment in Philadelphia. They released an LP, You’re Going to Have to Trust Me, on Burst and Bloom Records in late 2015, and an EP, F/V Hope in 2017 with Philadelphia’s Sleeper Records.

Friendship's new album, Shock out of Season, will come out November 3, 2017 on Orindal Records. It is a collection of songs about work, friends, love, and loneliness, lifted by synthesizer, pedal steel, and Rhodes piano, and set against a combination of live and programmed drums.

Wriggins’ lyrics reflect conversation, humor, and calamity. They stress his characters’ unmediated involvement in each other’s lives, which transcends and is frustrated by their failed communications. These tensions are expanded by the band’s twisted articulation of Americana - waves of ambient pedal steel, droning synthesizers and drum machines, vibraphone, electric piano, and percussion surge and fall alongside minimal guitar and bass patterns.

Track Name: If You See My Beloved
We walked to the dam behind the art museum
you said you made a connection with Auguste Rodin
you must’ve been tired from standing so much
because you took my hand and we held each other up
some time went by before you asked me
why was I so distracted, how could I have changed so quickly?
the water was pretty, but unclear
does the flow come naturally here?

everything makes an impression
clouds come on, do their drifty thing
now it’s starting to rain, the only day we both have off
it’s starting to rain
if it don’t bother you, then it don’t bother me

eddies were breaking on the spillway gates
I said “I’m sorry, that’s just how I operate”
you always had a supportive attitude
I don’t care what you say, I agree with you

everything came on quickly
is something wrong? no, never
now it’s starting to rain on the only day we have
it’s starting to rain
if it don’t bother you, it don’t bother me

carry me in your current, deliver me to your gulf stream
if you’d asked me then, I would’ve said we were living the dream
believe me, my admiration for you hasn’t died
the heaven of us is still daily on my mind

everything makes an impression
clouds came on, did their thing
now it’s starting to clear up on the only day
it’s starting to clear up
if it don’t bother you, then it don’t bother me
if you see my beloved, say what’s up for me
