Friends – Mind Control

June 6, 2012

I’m His Girl” was a track of that toyed with retro sonic tropes — the absurdly funky baseline, the background vocal harmonies — in a way that made Friends feel almost kitschy. That might sound like a slight, but it isn’t meant to be; “I’m His Girl” was one of our favorite tracks of the year because of its elements of pastiche and Brooklyn campiness. “Mind control” is cut from a similar sonic cloth, but it doesn’t have the unabashed attitude. Instead, it works off of a foundation of 80’s dance pop, and the rest is all Samantha Urbani singing like she’s in a room with no people, windows or mirrors.
