JUST FRIENDS – Release New Video For “Better 2 Be Around”

JUST FRIENDS Release Feel Good
Summer Sing-Along “Better 2 Be Around”
Taken From New Album “Gusher”
Out 1st September 2023 Via Pure Noise Records


Rising California funk rock band JUST FRIENDS has just dropped the feel good track of the summer, “Better 2 Be Around.” Featured on the group’s highly anticipated fourth full-length album, “Gusher,” that’s out 1st September 2023 from Pure Noise Records, “Better 2 Be Around” is a pure mood booster that basks in chill summer time vibes.

Commenting on the new single, JUST FRIENDS say:  “‘Better 2 Be Around’ started from a guitar loop that Yanko wrote at our old practice space one day. A few of us went to grab bagels and when we got back, J Crumb had recorded a bunch of vocal ideas over the melody. One of those vocals went “better to be around” with a country twang.It’s easy to find yourself disconnected and floating in limbo after days and days on the road. Sometimes we’re on autopilot, we shoot from the hip and end up hurting other peoples’ feelings when we never mean to. How do you become better to be around when you’re feeling down? This song is meant to uplift the heavy heart.
