Secret Friend’s single “I Don’t Know You” takes listeners on a journey into the mind of the obsessed, searching for love through self-medication, deception, and the psychedelic experience. The single is off the upcoming album Sleeper due out August 14.
With an offbeat electronic progression preluding the adventures of an overly-infatuated lead, “I Don’t Know You” produces a sense of mystery, wonder and anxiety. The entrance of a soft acoustic chord progression and flood of high-pitched, low volume electronic scales balances the somber reality behind Fox’s lyrics. The song ends in a surreal ambiguity both lyrically and melodiously, “I Don’t Know You” leads listeners into a pseudo-dreamlike state full of love and a small dose of concern.
