ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, June 5, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Make Believe Friends drops their latest video and single called “Haunt Me” on Friday, June 9, 2023. Mindy Milburn and Laura Espinoza are the primary songwriters of Make Believe Friends (aka Lunden Reign), an alt rock band in Los Angeles, California.

“Wow! The keyboards (in Haunt Me) are appropriately haunting. (Laura’s) guitar part before the chorus is outstanding and it is great to hear (Enrique’s) wah-wah later on. (Michaela’s) chorus harmonies are strong. With Mindy’s voice and the band, I think it is up there with Evanescence! (Also) The video perfectly matches the song …. (Mindy’s) delivery is emotional and gave me chills.” – Warren Kurtz – Goldmine Music Magazine

About “Haunt Me” (Lyrics by Mindy Milburn)

“Haunt Me” is about the loss of a loved one too soon, and in the despair of missing that person, how one might ask to be haunted, to be given a sign or an omen that the person on the other side is somehow still with them.

Taken far too early, stolen from this life too soon

So suddenly left all alone, I’m nothing without you

Don’t leave me, Haunt me

Whisper to me through the trees

Don’t leave me, Haunt me

Whatever you do, don’t go quietly

The idea came to me when I heard of a tragic loss, a young mother dying during childbirth, and how the husband could go on after suffering such a tremendous loss like this. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, what he would be feeling and how do you cope. It just seemed so impossible to me, but somehow, when tragedy strikes, the world does keep moving on. So this song is an expression of what someone in that situation might be wishing and praying for at all costs- a glimpse of a memory in a dream, a whisper through the trees, a phone that rings suspiciously or sudden static on a screen. Any potential sign to grasp onto to feel comforted that that loved one is still somehow present and nearby, and to never want to let them go.

About the production:

“Haunt Me” was written by Mindy Milburn (lyrics); music by Laura Espinoza & Enrique Garcia and produced by Bernie Godwin. They are joined by Michaela Metivier, Logan Miles Nix, Chris Eisenberg and Loris Eisaeian.

“Haunt Me” lyrics:

We had only just begun, you should be here with me

I stare at your photo for hours, will you set me free?

Taken far too early, stolen from this life too soon

So suddenly left all alone, I’m nothing without you

Don’t leave me, haunt me

Whisper to me through the trees

Don’t leave me, haunt me

Whatever you do, don’t go quietly

Show me that your still here

Be the static on the screen

Fill me with light when I’ve gone dark

The curious phone that rings

Don’t leave me, haunt me

Whisper to me, through the trees

Don’t leave me, haunt me

Whatever you do, don’t go quietly.

So stay with me always

Hold on forever lock and key

So stay with me always

Hold on forever, never let me be…

They tell me time will heal

That my shattered world will mend

Her towering tree grows strongest

Against a storm’s relentless wind

Don’t leave me, haunt me

Whisper to me, through the trees

Don’t leave me, haunt me

Whatever you do, don’t go quietly

Don’t leave me, haunt me

I believe you’re here with me

Don’t leave me, haunt me

Whatever you do, don’t go quietly
