Taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Deer Park’, CHURCH FRIENDS’ single, ‘Strawberry Cough’ showcases the funky soul side of this four piece Psych Rock/R&B hybrid act’s kush rock sound, collaborating with hip-hop artist Jordan Jetson. Their first time working with a hip hop artist, Jetson has come out of the same Louisville hip hop scene that birthed national talents Jack Harlow and Bryson Tiller.
A familiar theme to many, ‘Strawberry Cough’ explores the emotional turbulence of being turned down by a partner you thought was into you. The band completed all elements of the tracking, mixing, mastering, and production in their own studio which they have spent the past two years building in the basement of the house they live in together. Mastered using a tape machine, this attempt at an old school sound harkens back to days of bands living together and making music to get through day to day life.
Since formation in 2015, the band has experience steady growth as their music spreads. Known for raucous house shows and quarterly ‘Saturday Services’, the band has been packing out small venues around the city of Louisville. Church Friends have also had the honor of opening up for two time Grammy winner Fantastic Negrito, as well as Kentucky legends Boa.
