Los Angeles’ kidgloves Release Feel Good Single “just friends”

Cody (of kidgloves) on “just friends”:
“‘just friends’ is a song about being brutally friend-zoned by an ex. Itʼs about having to reinvent a relationship with someone that you used to be intimate with. ‘Poor soul it takes some time to get over yourself’ is a tip of the old hat to the cliche your close friends may tell you when youʼre dealing with both the heartbreak warfare and what you need to admit in order to get over your own pity and move on. Itʼs sort of an anthem to say ‘wake the f*ck up, itʼs over.'” :)

An introspective pause in an album packed full of political convictions and grit, Camera Obscura finds the band pondering morality, legacy and dissecting life’s big questions, as front man Steve Rawles explains:

“Camera Obscura is a story that envisions the end of your life and all the mixed feelings that you could potentially feel right before the final moment. Did I do enough? Was I good enough for the people around me? Did I make an impact on the world or did I just simply draw from it. Is there anything after this and if so.. why is there rules around following a deity based on others interpretations? Isn’t being moral without religion enough? A collection of thoughts.”
