Darla Jade is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter based in Stoke-On-Trent, England. She is known for her catchy yet soothing tunes. She has recently released her newest single titled 'Frenemy' which was inspired by teenage friendships and the pain of growing apart.
The song contains a mixtures of emotions - some parts being soft and other being punchy and quite high energy. Especially when it comes to the chorus, you really want to get up and dance.
You hear songs about relationship breakups but it is very rare you hear songs about friendships or friendship breakups. Sometimes they can be as painful as relationship breakups. You put all that trust in one person and when you reflect and release you are drifting away, it can really hurt. It isn't always mutual, depending on the situation, it could feel like the other half in the friendship is breaking away and becoming distant.
'Cos you are just a frenemy, but you can't be a friend to me, you forget about me at a drop of a hat'Lyrics from 'Frenemy' by Darla Jade
I love the high energy this song radiates during the chorus and the lyrics are written very well. This is a song I won't be able to get out of my head for a long while (but this may also be my fault because it will be on repeat for days). I can see Darla being very popular in the future - especially if she releases tracks like these. Very well done Darla!
