Real Friends welcome singer Cody Muraro, share two new songs

Signing to Pure Noise Records, Real Friends have started their next chapter with two songs – Nervous Wreck and Storyteller – featuring new vocalist Cody Muraro.

Following Dan Lambton’s departure in February 2020, Real Friends have introduced fans to new singer Cody Muraro with the release of two tracks, Nervous Wreck and Storyteller, via Pure Noise Records.

Nervous Wreck was inspired by the isolation I’ve experienced over the last year,” explains bassist Kyle Fasel. Before COVID hit, I was making strides to get out of my introverted ways. All of those strides were quickly erased when the world flipped upside down. I’ve often been so introverted that some people take it the wrong way, like I’m mean or something. When in reality, I’ve just developed some social anxiety as I get older. The lyrics of the song point to me being out of my own skin when around other people, and even feeling out of place when I’m by myself. There’s not really a resolution to the song. It’s very much about being in the midst of all those complicated feelings.

Having a new singer in the mix can be a hard challenge to overcome, but Nervous Wreck still fully embodies the spirit of Real Friends,” the musician adds. It fits Cody’s voice perfectly. I remember recording it and thinking this is exactly what Real Friends is. This track is very special to me.”
