Los Angeles-based newcomer BAER has a very cool and uplifting new tune to share with us this week called ‘What Does It Matter’, and if you don’t find yourself singing along to the chorus after the first listen, then you’d better go get that checked out.
The track features the tidy production work of Tyzo Bloom and Roland Greco, and it’s about the realization that we are all part of something that is much bigger than ourselves, with most of those small things that people seem to constantly dwell on, don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.
“I started writing this song when I took a solo trip to Ojai last summer. I was hiking up Meditation Mount, and when I reached the top and stared down at the vast scenery, with all these grand mountains and fields of green, I just had this sudden humbling realization that we are all part of something that is so much bigger than us, and that no matter what happens today, or tomorrow, or what happened five years ago, everything keeps moving and karma will eventually solve everything. So often, we focus our energy on the smallest, pettiest details and miss out on what’s really important in life. When did we stop loving? When did we stop believing, stop dreaming? I hope this song will urge people to live their best, to their fullest potential, so we all move the world in a positive direction.” – BAER
