Where Did All My Friends Go
WHERE DID ALL MY FRIENDS GO
Hot off the heels of her spring single “Eighteen”, singer-songwriter Julianna Laine further showcases the unique sound of bedroom pop with her brand new summer song “Where Did All My Friends Go”.
The singer’s new single (which is co-produced by Ethan Burke) is undeniably catchy at the first listen, but upon closer inspection, one will notice that it pairs darker subject matter lyric-wise with a fun beat. Laine says she hopes her song’s commentary on modern friendships will catch listeners' attention and make them think.
“These days, especially with social distancing there can be a weird dynamic of not knowing what your friends are thinking,” explains Laine. “It’s easy to judge at the surface level, but you never know what someone else might be feeling.”
With its underlying subtext of mental health, the singer has paired up with the Canadian Mental Health Association Calgary Region for the launch of the new song. Until the end of July, all proceeds from downloads and streams of “Where Did All My Friends Go” will be donated to CMHA Calgary. As well, Laine will be campaigning through the organization’s website to raise further funds for the cause with a goal of $2,500.
“People say things like ‘we should catch up’ and they don’t mean it or ‘everything is fine’ and it’s not always fine. The song itself sort of puts a fake persona. It might sound like a ‘bop’, but then you listen a little closer.”
Just like with her previous single, Laine has debuted a self-designed, artistic lyric video on YouTube. “Where Did All My Friends Go” is now available on all music services.
