Friendship Commanders - And if My Body

Nashville, Tennessee-based Friendship Commanders are a rock duet. Their upcoming album, BILL, was created in collaboration with Steve Albini at his Chicago studio, Electrical Audio. The band's major themes are covered in the thirteen songs in their body of work, which includes abuse survival, addiction, feminism, unity, human rights activism, equality, and friendship. 

Buick Audra and Jerry Roe, who make up the band, have been working together for five years. During that time, they have released three EPs and one full-length album, DAVE, with a portion of the proceeds going to charitable causes. Friendship Commanders have performed extensively on tour they released the second album on October 5, 2018.

This is their new single, called And if My Body. Buick Audra says about the song, “This is a failure of such enormity that we can’t even see the scope of it yet. It will ripple out for decades. And I find myself asking questions of not just the conservative minority who pushed this through, but of people on the Left as well. This is a product of many things, not the least of which are complacency and privilege. I have watched this happen; watched my peers downplay, minimize, and ignore all warnings that we activists have been shouting for years. And here we are, now. Failure.”

About the song I like the grunge vibes (great guitars) and especially the intense lyrics and the vocals, absolutely punchy but with a good melody at the same time (I love the chorus!). I find the drumming very dynamic and inspiring, as well as the general sound, giving every instrument the right kick. If you are into grunge vibes "And if My Body" is definitely a song for you.
