“Wanted A Name” – Frenship ft. Yoke Lore

We’ve been pretty much over Frenship from the start of their career tbh, but we looooove Yoke Lore. We appreciate the big sound in the chorus. There’s some huge energy – reminds us of something you’ll hear on a phone commercial. #issaight Listener score:

We’re not disappointed in the songwriting, just hoping for more… Continue Reading →
