The energetic track that tackles the mixed emotions of a friendship on the verge of romance serves as the first taste of the duo’s upcoming sophomore album on Universal Music Nashville, and the music video shows the song’s true meaning perfectly.
Shot in Nashville with director TK McKamy, the visual mirrors the flirtatious uncertainty that comes at the beginning of relationships.
“To us ‘Friends Don’t’ feels sexy and confident, but with a dash of that uncertainty you have at the start of a relationship because you don’t know if the other person feels the same way you do,” shared Dye. “We wanted to play off that push and pull we’ve all felt before.”
“We both got to do a little acting and play out separate storylines with a love interest,” added Marlow. “It was pretty outside of the box for us to act, so we just tried to have fun with it.”
