The greatest strength of My Friends is how well it straddles the line between fresh and familiar. New Zealand singer-songwriter Mousey’s lyricism and songwriting are excellent, bolstered by the album’s phenomenal production.
Together, the three elements reward repeated listens as you focus in on every expertly crafted element that comprise the listening experience. It’s effortlessly creative without being contrarian, and immediately accessible without being shallow.
Mousey’s My Friends is out now via Winegum Records.
