Erik Mutzke creates light and dark in the evocative yet classic folk of "Friends Again"

The track Friends Again by Erik Mutzke feels like classic folk in a good way. Built on a conversational beautifully wrought vocal performance with an equally evocative female harmony pulling in the affection at the edges, the song somberly wraps around you like a kiss and embrace before bed. The lyrics are both beautiful and like all great poetry can be interpreted in different ways. There are some lines that veer dark, at least to me, but I will keep those predilections to myself. Love this song and Mutzke's aesthetic.

Sleep dreams.
