Friday Morning - Khruangbin
Friday MorningCon Todo El Mundo fip FM4
"Friday Morning" is the first love song we've ever written. It's about risk-taking in relationships, that feeling of vulnerability when you choose to jump in head-first and trust another person. Towards the end of the song, you can hear the faint traces of Laura Lee reading aloud from old love letters, which she had to take about three shots of tequila to get through. Musically, some people have scratched their heads and asked why this song reminds them of Ice Cube's "It Was A Good Day." The reason is because they're hearing Mark's obsession with Ernie Isley of the Isley Brothers, one of the most sampled artists of all time and another of Mark's favorite guitarists. His tone in this song definitely gets Isley-esque. As a group, this is our favorite song. There's something about it that's really satisfying to play. Maybe because it's a "feel" song, the kind of song you have to feel to play. You can't just space out and rely on autopilot. You have to be in it to keep up with it. Sort of like love itself.
