"youth" by Cleopatrick
"In the depths of my confusion, I would compare myself to the boys around me. Was I really nobler? or was I just another lame kid wasting my youth, skipping parties to play guitar in my basement? it was a struggle between reserve or over-indulgence. “youth” illustrates this struggle using the symbol of a cigarette – the idea of indulgence, regardless of who it hurts or what it does.
By the time I was finishing high school, a profound anger was building deep inside of me. I couldn’t go to the parties because, when I did, I felt overwhelmed with anxiety from the mistreatment and predation that thrived in those environments. “youth” is me finally letting that anger out, and reaching my conclusion on how wrong it all is. “youth” is me confronting them for wasting so much time. “youth” is me standing up for the girls that have to put up with that bullshit. “youth” is a message to those guys – I haven’t forgotten the things the things you’ve done."
"first or last, somewhere you’ve ashed, the cigarette, that’s going to take you down. "
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
