Lil Halima shares red-hot disco-inspired “Friends” as her quest for space continues

Oslo-based creative mastermind Lil Halima drops a club-ready anthem in celebration of the nights out where there’s respite from a heaving dancefloor.

Influenced by both “modern-day pop and the authentic ‘80s black disco” Lil Halima is bringing together these worlds together on her latest single. It also comes complete with a homemade isolation video.

Following “Glue” earlier in the year, lyrically “Friends” addresses a similar situation. While “Glue” was concerned with the space needed for a romantic relationship to be successful, Halima’s love of distance is applied to a night out.

“[“Friends”] represents the moments of joy, where I am comfortable around people and just feel like dancing”, she explains, “I don’t like going out, and I don’t like big crowds, so when I meet the right people at the right place and things just click, its [so] much fun, and I feel the way I feel in this song.

Lil Halima’s sound is forever shape-shifting. New here? Start with EPs love songs for bad lovers, for the dark days and for the bright days then graduate to her mixtape Brown Girl Diary – produced entirely in collaboration with Canto who’s at the helm of “Friends” too.

A musical and visual artist Halima’s creative work spans both genres and mediums and always speaks volumes to her personal experiences.

“Friends” is out now via Island Records. Find Lil Halima on Instagram.
