Updated: Dec 10, 2021
Receiving over 80,000 streams on Spotify alone, 'Just Friends' is certainly the track that's putting Lily Kaplan firmly on the map. Written after going through heartbreak, the track hears Lily process those emotions and clearly states she uses music as a form of escapism. Produced by Sammy Gonzalez and further mastered by Ryan Haft, the relatable indie-pop single comes in a time of need for the heartbroken across the globe. Adding to the track’s effect on her, Lily shares, “I feel very at ease when I hear it as I was finally able to let go of this person and finally begin to move on. It was almost like a final goodbye to this person and closure for myself. I was in lust with someone for over a year and a half. It was really really unhealthy and stunted a lot of my growth.
I thought for so long that this person was everything that id ever wanted and that I loved them, but being in love with the right person now has shown me that it really wasn’t even that. I was longing for comfort and security and thought that I could find it in them. It was really back and forth for so long and honestly just torturous. The song literally took ten minutes to write. It was almost waiting to be released.”
