Indie Songwriter Cheyenne Pohl’s Navigates the ‘Friend Crush’ on New Single

Cheyenne Pohl –  Friend Crush

Released by: DistroKid
Genre: Pop Rock, Indie Rock
Moods: Happy, Energetic

Friend Crush is an upbeat rock song that navigates the feelings and emotions a person has when they start to have a crush on a friend. Every time I thought I was starting to have feelings for someone I always asked myself…do you see yourself dating them or is it a friend crush? To me, having a friend crush always meant I loved the person’s energy, they gave me a serotonin type of feeling, and I craved their presence…but I couldn’t imagine us being boyfriend and girlfriend. The song plays off of those feelings with a bit more of a romantic twist. Friend Crush goes through this journey of dissecting one’s emotions and tendencies. Is it a friend crush or is there something more? Why do I care how I respond to your messages? You’re always making me smile…is that a normal friend thing? Why am I so nervous around you? This “crush” feels more intense than the others. Etc. There’s nothing in this world more confusing than trying to figure out your feelings for someone that in the end you probably don’t have real feelings for.
