Friends and Amigos make music seem like a companion for life. Their themes, styles and intents are always varying. However, they are on a path to making music and experiences along the way. For this single, they come together for a peppy, upbeat and energetic number. This single is called Three Dollar Bill.
The groove is deep within this one. Something that you assume will take acoustic direction becomes something as funky as salsa. The drums become essential in this song, they are the spine that make it so unique to hear. Chords progress with the vocals, this idiosyncratic episode in the protagonists’ life. The galloping beat adds the spice, salt and zing to the mix definitely. Gabrielle’s vocals are almost hypnotic, carrying this powerful mixed feelings attitude a song like this needs. Spencer Marcotte deserves a lot of praise for this song, with a 4/4 setup he takes you on a journey. It is as dynamic as it is memorable, you’ll be humming the chorus in no time. Sure, there is no three dollar bill as yet, but Friends and Amigos should definitely be featured in it. Levi Hebeisen and Avi Ali dialled it back for this song to create a warm ambience, and it worked impeccably.
Their single Sitting on Tables is their single which broke through the ceiling. Letters to Juliet (2010) would be a great movie to have this song in. It features some wonderful romantic sequences, while focusing on the protagonist with a fresher perspective. Follow Friends and Amigos for more of their singles that are soon to come!
