In Their Words: “We think of ‘What a Friend’ as a lament. It’s passionate. It’s a song we struggle to sing — it’s laden with regret and disappointment. The song looks into a life that is unravelling internally and externally, a character who struggles to communicate, someone who’s on the edge. We’re really singing about being a failure as a friend, about not being there. Maybe the song is a small declaration that you can’t always be there for your friends, maybe that’s not always healthy for you, and possibly them, but it still hurts to fail others. The song is part of our new EP Mass, and it plays with those ideas of beauty and disappointment. We like to think of these songs as ultimately hopeful; we certainly see the sadness as leading to resilience.” — Terrible Sons
