DUN MATTER EP.
STORY BEHIND THE RECORD:
i had been thinking a lot about how punk music related to modern trap music. how the best examples of both genres depended on a raw authenticity, spontaneity, and most of all imperfections. in a world where everyone wanted to be the next perfectly famous thing, the idea of pretty imperfections really appealed to me during the recording process of this DUN MATTER.
i'd also finally begun to grapple with my own life-long anxiety by realizing that nothing really matters unless you make it matter. you're the one who holds yourself hostage by making up stories in the mind that you believe to be real. so in the spirit of mental health and imperfect punk rock -- i began work on THE DUN MATTER EP.
what came next came as much as possible from the unconscious -- as for once i refused to overthink any of my original instincts on lyrics, melodies, or drum beats. i promised myself to follow through on ideas, and listen back weeks later.
what resulted was a blend of downbeat trap drums, introspective lyrics, and a minimal production style that surprised even me. truth is, I haven't really shared the full record with anyone -- until now. if this record is about anything, it's about self-belief and not giving a fuck what anyone thinks of you. be yourself and soar.
i hope you enjoy it.
PS: I sing on this one. ;)
