The Vancouver-based indie-pop stylings of young friend emerge in his newest release, “ARIZONA.” Recruiting the assistance of fellow talented vocalist ella jane, young friend’s newest single is comprised of shimmering guitar chords and dreamy vocal performances from both burgeoning acts. Opened gently, “ARIZONA” characterizes a blissful dream-like set of sequences that touch on their inner dialogue, relationships, and the inevitable end of those relationships. Despite the song’s somewhat melancholy subject matter, young friend and ella jane’s performances on the new single bring the energy level up while simultaneously conveying the emotional weight of heartbreak. young friend is a name to remember and the beautiful accompanying role of ella jane should not be overlooked in this replay-heavy new single. “ARIZONA” feels like closure, heart-wrenching closure, but closure nonetheless.
