Lately, I’ve been really digging Phoebe Bridger’s cover of Friday I’m in Love by The Cure. I love Indie-rock singer/songwriter, Phoebe Bridgers, who joined forces with two of Indie-rock’s other new songwriters, Lucy Dacas and Julien Baker to make the album, boygenius. Phoebe also teamed up recently with Conor Oberst to form Better Oblivion Community Center and record a new folk-rock album. The duo is currently on tour and performed at two sold out shows in Los Angeles.
The chorus of Friday I’m in Love goes like this:
And Sunday always comes too late
But Sunday never hesitate…
You have to listen to the whole song, which I’ve linked below. It’s a happy little song about being in love. Bridgers does something very cool to the song, stripping it down to an acoustic tune built around a pedal point on G major, which is played softly on keyboard/piano. It has a quiet, lyrical feel to it. I sketched the piece above yesterday, Saturday, with this song in mind and inspired by Phoebe Bridgers. I don’t know her, of course, but I admire her talent, independent spirit and music. I’m sure that there is much more to come from this talented young artist. Have a listen below to Phoebe Bridger’s, Friday I’m in Love.
