Unrequited love can be difficult. It can be especially difficult when it comes to having any romantic feelings for one of your friends. Getting placed in the friend zone is a spot that nearly everyone wants to avoid, a place that does not make you feel like you will ever be set free. In his latest song “Friend Zone”, Sway Clarke captivates the feelings of being placed in the friend zone.
Even though the song is titled “Friend Zone”, it takes a different approach to what being in the friend zone is truly like. The song is about your significant other breaking up with you for someone else. Even though your significant other broke up with you, the four word line is used: “Let’s just be friends”.
The song has a unique tone to it. In the song Sway Clarke reminds us what it is like to be exiled to the friend zone. With his song “Friend Zone”, Sway Clarke proves why he is a force to be reckoned with in music.

Bristol-based electronic/R&B singer Henry Green has just released “Shift”, the title track off his forthcoming debut album, which is out March 30. His LP will be out via Akira Records, having already released two acclaimed EPs. He has also dropped “Without You”, which you can listen to here. “Shift” is a smooth, electronic track filled with airy vocals from Green. It provides a sense of whirling around within the listener’s experience.
Says Henry Green “Shift” is all about movement “The whole album is based around this theme, but none more so than this track. It felt like a very natural theme to explore and one that I constantly gravitated towards when writing lyrics or describing the evolution of a track. I wanted to make the album feel like it was constantly in motion; moving at a variety of paces, pushing and pulling in different ways but always feeling like progression. Lyrically, ’Shift’ refers to the sensation of falling, unaware of when you’ll reach an end but enjoying the loss of control and feeling of weightlessness.”
Keep an eye out for Shift, out on March 30.
