Before we get into the usual madness of New Music Friday, Friendzone & Nikademis have released their newest track, “I Don’t Wanna Know” featuring Candace Sosa.
Blending pop writing with electronic elements and a hefty second drop, this song is absolutely fantastic. The first drop is wonderfully high energy and emotional, while the second is devilishly hard. The final section of the song returns to the emotionality of the first drop, giving it an enjoyable feeling of symmetry and finality.
“IDWK was such a fun project to work on because it embodies the essence of who and what the Friendzone project is meant to be. From start to finish it was us, working with friends to create something special and unique. Nikademis was one of our very first friends in the music industry and we’d been working towards this collab for a long time. Candace Sosa the AMAZING vocal feature on the track was referred to us by our good friend Krysta Youngs and we instantly clicked with her as well. We could not be more happy with how everything came out and just can not wait for people to hear this.” – Friendzone
