I wrote and recorded this song over the course of three weeks from January-February 2020. It was the longest I ever spent on one song, and as happens with some creative projects I stopped enjoying the process about halfway through but felt committed to seeing it through and finishing the song. Usually I'll forget why I like a song by the time I finish, but then I'll show it to people and then they'll say they like it and then I'll go "oh yeah it is good" and feel motivated to make another thing. When I finished this one and showed it to people, it got a more lukewarm response, some people saying they thought it was good, others saying 'hmm idk about this.' Hearing a mixed response sorta took the wind out of my sails for a while and it was hard to get to work on another song, since I had poured so much energy into something that seemed to be a flop.

Today I listened to it again after a year and a half and I like it! I think the instrumentation is really bizarre and the lyrics are kinda cool too. I won't give the whole thing away but part of it is about a kid who looks directly into the sun because it's the only way he can hurt himself inside his baby-proofed universe.

If you are a fan of my cartoons and didn't know I am an aspiring musician, I've been at it for maybe three or four years now? I don't post much of my music because I'm still not amazing at it, but I'm getting there. I'm going to do a news post about that whole journey soon. My musical group project PRIMBO is also dropping something really really sick in a few days, so stay tuned for that. I hope you like my song!
