Billie Eilish strikes the perfect combination of spooky and caring in “Bury a Friend”, her third single from her upcoming debut studio album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? With only a debut EP (Don’t Smile at Me) and several singles out so far, 17-year-old Eilish has already attracted a massive following, likely due to her uniquely dark approach to electropop and the disaffected, yet thoughtful and emotional demeanor into which many of her songs lean.

I wanna end me
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna… end me
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna…
What do you want from me? Why don't you run from me?
What are you wondering? What do you know?
Why aren't you scared of me? Why do you care for me?
When we all fall asleep, where do we go?
[Verse 1: Billie Eilish & Crooks]
Say it, spit it out, what is it exactly
You're payin'? Is the amount cleanin' you out? Am I satisfactory?
Today, I'm thinkin' about the things that are deadly
The way I'm drinkin' you down
Like I wanna drown, like I wanna end me
If this is true, “Bury a Friend” leans harder in than ever before. The melody of its refrain feels almost familiar upon first listen: innocuous as a childhood rhyme, with understated vocals and unmistakably dark undertones. But the aspect of the song as a whole, ultimately, is anything but. “Bury a Friend” is completely ghostly, from the surface-level lyrics and subject matter (“Honestly, I thought that I would be dead by now”) straight down to the stripped-away beat that makes up the spine of the song. But Eilish’s truly masterful feat here — as in much of her music, but perhaps here most acutely — is her wedding of the superficially repellent and the innately appealing, the scary and the loved.
