Today’s Daily Feature is the colorful, vibey pop track “I’m not looking for a friend” by UK pop singer-songwriter Beth Keeping. This track explores situationships and self-confidence. The artist had this to say about the song’s background: “It’s about being clear on what you want and intentional about going after it. It recognises that friendships can gradually develop into something more, and this process can be complicated and confusing, but you can’t sit in that space forever – eventually, you have to make a decision either way.”
Keeping’s songwriting features memories that we yearn back on in an empowering way in the lyrics. Her honesty and confident words have people feel more connected to her music. But it isn’t her lyrics that catch the audience’s attention, it is also the musicality as well. “I’m not looking for a friend” takes influences from Taylor Swift-like melodies and electropop producer Zedd’s riffs to craft a catchy, feel-good tune. It is filled with colorful pop melodies that are super catchy, making the listener want to sing along. But don’t forget about the romantic synths, the buoyant tempo, and the euphonious vocals.
Beth Keeping’s newest single is an inspirational tune that delivers lyrics about empowering but also defining clearly certain situationships. But, it is a catchy pop song with delightful riffs, brightly colored melodies, and a melodic soundscape that will have listeners dance daily.
