JST FRNDS “Trigger” hits hard as it navigates love and compromise


JST FRNDS - "Trigger"

The visualizer of JST FRNDS’ newest single, “Trigger,” begins by defining the term “trigger” as a catalyst for an event or a situation. It unfolds in the kitchen of husband-and-wife duo Callie Dixon and Gabe Neal at 2 a.m. — and eventually 4 a.m. in the second verse. 

“Trigger” delves into the complexities of love, compromise and communication, exploring the intensity of a relationship that is on the brink of collapse. In the pre-chorus, they sing together, “Shouldn’t have said it / Pulling the trigger,” signaling the misunderstandings and poor communication that fuel an uncontrollable cycle of empty apologies and painful conversations.

As they grapple with their differences and attempt to compromise, Dixon and Neal find themselves unable to see eye to eye, as depicted in the lyrics, “The lie was never in your words but in your eyes, I find / The smallest little things that make me compromise / But we fall right back when you love like that.”

The project follows their recent collaborations on We Ani’s “Disgusted,” Michael Sanzone’s “HOME” and TX2’s “I Would Hate Me Too.” JST FRNDS’ musical success has earned them spots on 24 viral Spotify charts, and they have also been featured on BBC Radio 1’s Best New Pop. “Trigger” will definitely put them on the map once more.

“Releasing ‘Trigger’ marks a significant moment for us. Over the past few years, we’ve been on a journey of self-discovery, both individually and as a couple,” Dixon and Neal said about crafting this latest track. “Our experiences, particularly within our marriage, have inspired us to create music that is authentic and unfiltered. We aim to continue this tradition of honest songwriting, sharing our stories and connecting with listeners on a deeper level.”

This emotionally charged radio-ready pop song captures the aftermath of a fight or heartbreak, where it feels like all there is left to do is move on because there’s no point of arguing anymore. It serves as the ideal soundtrack for dancing and crying when you just need something to cling to as your relationship unravels. Ultimately, JST FRNDS’ “Trigger” can be a “friend” to you when you need to be outspoken, honest and raw about your feelings.
