This song is the touch of someone comforting, the softness of held hands, taking off and running together with reckless abandon. This song is forgetting about everything before that person, letting go of the things that hurt you for the experience right in front of you. It's driving up to go look at city lights, driving a little too fast, but you're invincible for the brief moment, weightless going around corners. This song is dark blue, bright white, the colors of sunset and night time. This song is a million mistakes, feeling like consequences couldn't exist. The crushing realization that you've gone too far. This song is the flush in your stomach, the rush of blood knowing that you've built your life around one single person, and once they're gone you'll be nothing. This song is bittersweet devastation.
FRND, the brainchild of Multi-Platinum producer Andrew Goldstein, creates consistently amazing music. Each one is handcrafted to deliver a little package of emotions right to your doorstep; they pack a powerful punch lyrically, often emotional and poignant, and couple that with top-notch production and musicality. Don't just take my word for it: you can check out the music video for this track on FRND's youtube and Instagram. The video, conceptualized in part by FRND's deep-seated interest in robotics and technology, takes the idea of being created for someone to an entirely new level. It expertly ties together the more mechanical aspects of the song with a colorful interpretation of the story being told in it. It asks, what happens when you lose someone who's created a new life for you? Watch and listen to 'Before U I Didn't Exist' and find out for yourself.
