BETTER FRIEND “Safe House” (Gay Hippie Vampire)


Oh …
I had no intention of having an emo flashback today, but here I am with Better Friend’s Safe House, an EP dropped in 2015 and reissued by Gay Hippie Vampire in 2017. High-pitched tortured vocals, all lines beginning in media res with “And,” an affinity for Sunny Day Real Estate … Oh my god, Better Friend is an absolute dream.
“You will be miserable when you get older, you know.”
Perfect emo lyric. I’m smitten. Here comes the rabbit hole for the rest of the day. Further Seems Forever next, maybe?
