Capturing the insecurity and confusion felt by today's youth - One Day by Perfect Friction

Perfect Friction formed in early 2012 when five young musicians, who had been playing traditional Irish music sessions together in Wicklow town, decided to enlist the services of a talented vocalist and put a new sound on the road. The band’s music ranges from high-energy trad sets with a full range of instruments (fiddle, flute, uilleann pipes, concertina, accordion, whistle, bodhran, guitar, banjo), to pop and rock songs tastefully arranged with a trad theme. The band includes Louise Kelly (Lead Vocals); Laura Callaghan (Guitar/banjo/vocals); Courtney Cullen (Fiddle/Flute/Whistle); Debbie Byrne (Accordion/Vocals); Lottie Cullen (Uilleann Pipes/Fiddle/Concertina/Whistle); Robbie Walsh (Bodhrán/Percussion).

This is their latest single. They say: "The single aims to capture the insecurity and confusion many of us 20-something year olds feel as we try to find our direction in life. The band as a whole can strongly relate to the message behind this song, particularly as we are exploring musical opportunities ourselves and find the sometimes overwhelming uncertainty and feeling of risk, which goes hand in hand with forgoing a career with more stability, is a tough monster to overcome. FOMO (fear of missing out) has become a well established catch phrase in recent times and this song 'One Day' attempts to apprehend that feeling and let others know that they are far from alone in feeling this way. While watching friends delve into an array of different business opportunities, travel the globe, continue to study towards an ideal job or develop their career, start a family or make their way onto the property ladder, one can become confused, doubtful and disheartened by the path they find themselves following. 'One Day' sheds some light on these thoughts in a light and playful manner, encouraging listeners that their path will unfold in due course and to take one day at a time.
