Review: "we can't be friends" - Eliza Tamar

Has someone ever broken up with you, and then they have the nerve to ask you if you can still be friends? The first words that usually come to mind in a scenario like this are, "you've got to be kidding, right?". It's almost humorous when someone thinks you'd want to be their friend after breaking your heart. You don't know whether to laugh, be dumbfounded, or just flat-out angry. A typical response is NO! ; because how are you supposed to just get over somebody you had feelings for if they're still hanging around? "we can't be friends" by Eliza Tamar is a catchy, electro / dance pop song about rejecting the idea of being friends with an ex.

"we can't be friends" has such a versatile sound that it could be used for any type of scenerio; like background music while you're at the beach, a song to sing your heart out to with headphones on while you're dealing with a breakup, or a song to dance to while you're having a ladies night out. Eliza's soft and intimate vocals mixed with the emotional lyrics and phenomenal production (by Trey Vittetoe) bring this track to life. It's a very Summer playlist worthy type of sound that'll easily get stuck in your head.

Eliza Tamar is an Armenian pop singer from the bay area of San Francisco, California. She's a graduate from the University of Southern California and is a hard-working corporate girl who is a "pop princess" in the evenings and on the weekends, spending her free time in the studio or at the beach! She debuted her music career earlier this year with her first single, "Final Kiss" which is also a catchy, funky electro-pop vibe. "we can't be friends" is her second single release.
