When discussing the track, Breagh said:
“I had no firm intention of delving into a solo artist project when I wrote ‘Girlfriends,’ but the song easily became the most honest thing I had ever written. I started to feel like I had something to say that might resonate. The song is about little – and sometimes big – moments and thoughts I didn’t know what to do with at the time, but now realize were just expressions of me figuring out who I am.”
The incredibly emotional vocals from Breagh compliments the lyrics perfectly. With the bouncy electric guitar and emotional story telling, we are sure this track will be on repeat for a lot of you for a while. Breagh’s coming of age story is told perfectly through breezy vocals and passion.
