Bang Bang Jet Away – “You Slept With My Best Friend”


Released today, the hooky and charismatic “You Slept With My Best Friend” comes from San Diego-based duo Bang Bang Jet Away, who impressed this past December with the track “When I Said I Loved You.” Energetic guitars craft a pulsing background with ample energy, as the guitar let out a perpetual sigh of sorts — “you slept with my best friend, yes it’s true.” The twangy guitar additions and crunchy backing distortion combine with the defeated-sounding vocals for a melodic, engrossing impact — aesthetically reminiscent of The Walkmen. “You Slept With My Best Friend” is an immediate rocker with melodic replay-inducing enjoyment from Bang Bang Jet Away.

Per the band: “It’s a song about suspecting your girlfriend slept with your best friend, but you don’t necessarily want confirmation that it’s true, because then you’d have to deal with the consequences.”

“You Slept With My Best Friend” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2021’ Spotify playlist.
