Friend fatigue is a commonality that characterises our social lives; relationships can turn sour, toxic, and unsalvageable. Enter: Put Down The Phone, Don Coyote’s latest single and celebration of the relief you can feel once you have hung up on such people.

The sunny electric guitar and active bassline establish a familiar and bright indie rock tune – their feelings become ours, and we can bop along to them together. After working through emotive and introspective verses and choruses, the culmination of the song breaks down into a joyous repetition of “I don’t like you anymore’ and “put down the fucking phone”: a release of positivity and relief. Life is already better, and there is a flurry of echoing backing vocals to affirm.
