What So Not just released a new production that teeters on the edge of perfection…
“We Can Be Friends” exists in a musical space all its own, with whirling synths, knockout vocals, and much of What So Not’s signature style. Powerhouse vocalist Herizen drives home a riveting emotional message as WSN takes the reigns on the production — and together, it’s simply magic.
“I met [Herizen] on a writing camp in Nicaragua,” What So Not shares on how they linked up. “Soon after we met up in LA. She was in a bit of a state & belted out this chorus over some chords I was playing, first take. It was a very real moment. We caught it & ran with it.”
“I’d been listening to a lot of Dilla,” he explains. “Did some simple drum programming and played in textures and riffs on a Nord. I kept the production light & lush centering the song around the beautiful & haunting vocal.”
As you can hear, this collaboration was meant to be. Listen below and let your heart just melt to the sounds of “We Can Be Friends.”
