Founded by songwriter Sonia Sturino bassist Annie Hoffman and drummer Cam Jones in 2015 the trio is a low pressure outlet for emotionally volatile music. For Sturino writing in Weakened Friends is more of a physical process than a mental one. “I have to feel the vibration or sound coming out of my body. I need the physicality to do it to enjoy singing it ” she says. “People probably hear the vocals and think ‘she just puts on that weird voice ’ but it’s really just what comes out. It’s my body making that sound.” Many of the songs reckon with deep mid-20s malaise — with the feeling of being young stuck and settling for less.
