SONG PICK: FRND – Be Happy
From a song title like “Be Happy”, one is inclined to expect some over-the-top upbeat, heavily sugar-coated tune yet this one is chill and laid-back, slightly melancholic even at times.

You wake up one day and feel that you can let go of the hurt, anger, sadness, and whatever else is holding you back from moving on.” says singer and electronic producer FRND about his latest single.
What makes “Be Happy” stand-out most are the intriguingly soft and beautiful vocals as well as the surprising chord progressions and overall instrumentation.
