Weakened Friends at The Mr. Roboto Project
Don't Let the Scene Go Down on Me! Collective presents...

Weakened Friends
Common Blah is the debut full-length by Portland, Maine's Weakened Friends. Founded by songwriter Sonia Sturino, bassist Annie Hoffman, and drummer Cam Jones in 2015, the trio is a low pressure outlet for emotionally volatile music. Engineered and produced by Hoffman and perfected over the last year, the record broadcasts heavy feelings amid screech and feedback with little more than a fuzz pedal to clog up the signal chain. For Sturino, writing in Weakened Friends is more of a physical process than a mental one. I have to feel the vibration or sound coming out of my body. I need the physicality to do it, to enjoy singing it, she says. People probably hear the vocals and think, she just puts on that weird voice, but its really just what comes out. Its my body making that sound.Many of the songs reckon with deep mid-20s malaise  with the feeling of being young, stuck, and settling for less. Sometimes, things look good on the outside, but they're not working. That's how it used to be for me. Id hear, You have a really cool job. You live in a cool city. Your band is cool. It was Common Blah though because I was miserable. I didn't care. Now, I'm at the other end of the spectrum. People do something that they think they're supposed to do when its not what they should be doing and it doesn't make them happy. In a lot of ways, this is the first time I've found happiness. I wrote the lyrics about the time before that happiness. On Common Blah, Weakened Friends use volume  instrumental and emotional  to reassert a sense of control in a time when daily life has slid out of tune. The album also features guest shredding by peer and kindred spirit J Mascis on the song Hate Mail. Common Blah will be out on CD, LP, and digital download via Don Giovanni Records on October 19th.
