LA-based artist SEB breaks down the walls and invites us to reflect on those key moments in our lives whereby we need to stay true to our goals and passions with his first single of 2022 in ‘f**k it, i’m the man’, a groovy number that evokes those summer influences with luscious guitars and dreamy melodies that counteracts the seriousness and conflict held within the lyricism of this very important release.
In the early stages of ‘f**k it, i’m the man’, we see those trademark elements that we’ve come to love and cherish from SEB, that being an vibrant soundscape filled with crunchy foundations which encapsulates plenty of flavour and confidence throughout the journey of the release. Even with a laidback vocal approach, those commanding melodies strike through with their emotionally fuelled nature striking a chord immediately with all listeners who might’ve had these similar situations in their own personal lives.
“This song is about standing on your own and living your life according to you and only you…After a blowout argument, I ended up having to permanently cut off family members who did nothing but tell me how much of a disappointment I was. In the chorus, I’m trying to be exuberant and confident but that’s only to mask the pain I’m feeling in the verses. From talking to people around me, I know I’m definitely not the only one who’s gone through this. I want fans who are living through that, to feel empowered to do them, regardless of what anybody has to say.” – SEB
