Gracie Abrams released her debut EP, minor, this past week, beginning the 7-track EP with her song, “Friend.” Abrams classifies this as her debut “project,” and it is the first fans are hearing from her since 2020 started.
The first time I listened to this song, I felt it in my chest. Abrams begins her chorus with, “I just can’t believe you don’t know what I’m feeling/ Guess you got the best of this/ Pickin’ up the pieces, you just wanna leave ’em/ Killing me a little bit.” Her disappointment and pain oozes from her lyrics, and her music, in a way, is cathartic to fans, knowing that they too have definitely experienced what she has at least once before.
Abrams entire project is a masterpiece, and you should do yourself a favor and take a listen to it, maybe with a box of tissues and some chocolate to go with it.
