Gave it a listen, and I get dystopian vibes whenever something like this happens. It reminds me a lot of someone just making ‘white noise for babies’ part 1, 2, 3, 4, etc for their entire lives. I love seeing anyone become successful, but when I see what they often have to do in order to get there (blend in, create ‘content’, give up their hopes and dreams of ever playing another style should they ever feel like it), I find it to be a bit demoralizing.
I see why all of these ‘influencer’ types are always struggling with depression and shit, too (not to undermine serious mental health disorders, which I’m absolutely not a stranger to). They just have to push out bullshit like this (in video form) in order to generate their revenue, and then they wonder why they feel so dead inside. Nothing is really on the line anymore and they’re not even giving their output a chance to fail miserably, because taking real chances can sometimes be the part that makes you feel so alive. Even if that means being torn to shreds, or god forbid, getting real insight into how to create more enjoyable music for yourself and others.
I mean, literally everyone posting on here is better than that. If you still have a soul and you’re not afraid to fail, you’re creating music over content. Don’t let this imagined ‘success’ bring you down, it’s literally just elevator music on steroids. Real growth as an artist is way cooler than stagnating like this, and no amount of fans, magazine articles or monetary gain is worth that.
