Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Frankie pretty much created the album solely and brought it to all of us to breathe our spirits into it.Beary Fuzz
Released on January 29, 2022. Beary Fuzz: We were all getting older and came to a rude awakening that most of our childhood friends were shadows of our memories. Some went on living their lives and others were buried in the ground. A dear friend of Frankie’s took his own life back in 2019. He had already completed his second album for release, “Look Up!!” but the idea of WRDFRNDZ subconsciously came about during that time and fully blossomed in early 2021.
Frankie and Venus were already friends and did some unreleased work together and I came about during Frankie’s trip to Hawaii to which I joined their group as guitarist. Frankie pretty much created the album solely and brought it to all of us to breathe our spirits into it.
What is your vision for this song?
My vision for this project was to capture the essence of retaining childhood friendships while getting older and battling inner demons.Frankie Midnight
My homie, Lloyd (R.I.P.), though we weren’t the closest of friends, were always tight whenever we saw each other and I always told him that when I made it, I would take him with me to be part of the team. The last time we saw each other, he and his girl offered me a ride home but I declined to stay to at the party. I didn’t know that would be my last time seeing him.
With this project, “WRDFRNDZ”, I’m challenging our listeners to ask themselves some questions about responsibility to those in our lives;
What does it mean to be a “good friend”?
Do we pay attention to our friends, enough to notice any irregularities? Are we spending enough time and appreciation with our friends? These are the questions that WRDFRNDZ raise awareness towards, in hopes that their message will get through to their listeners;
pay attention to those around you because your attentiveness could potentially save a life.
