Quick Thoughts: Carliane Tamara has just one track on streaming services, but her debut is an unapologetic, confident introduction to the world. At the top of Friends, she sings, “Take a look at me / Take a look at me / Yeah, I know I look good.” Carliane scatters clever lyricism throughout the track, showing off a swagger that should become her signature as she releases more music.
A fun pop song with an infectious hook and a thumping bass line, Friends is going to be a staple of summer playlists in a few months. Until then, we’ll be dreaming of warmer weather as we play this track on repeat. Stream on Spotify:
