most of u will probs hate listening to this. i do not care.
i admit, im biased, ive been a fan of him ever since i was a 11 year old edm kid, ive loved him ever since since the spitfire ep in 2011. but seeing him grow into the heartfelt singer-songwriter and producer is now has been rlly important to me. worlds was already a massive breakthru for me (and many others) in actually making a point that electronic music does not have to be about the fanciest narliest drops, that it can express real human emotion. but where worlds was about growing up thru a world of memories of anime and video games and the things that developed him, this one is all about what the fuck do u do once u are all grown and u got everything u wanted already and u feel like shit for it.
this one is about him, and if u want, its about u, cuz its def about me as well. 5 years of depression and self-loathing and burnout and identity crisis bottled up here, with a hopeful message of perseverance and self-worth and worth to others thru the love u give thru out. amazing knowing that the guy i probs unconsciously looked up to most in my whole life was going thru the worst time in his life the same time i was, and he made it out with this to show, he made it out alive and happy, so maybe i can too. its a 10. its a fuckin 10. i know most of u would probs consider this one too unironically heartfelt and unelitist to rlly dig it, but my god pls just give it a chance for ur old pal ivy will ya!? <3
