In a time when every song on the radio seems to celebrate the fleeting feeling of immortality of youth or maybe a single great night out, it’s a bit strange that more artists haven’t tried to break some new thematic ground. We’re talking about the other 99.87% of life when you have to go to work, provide for your family, and wake every morning with the knowledge the person in the mirror is ever-so-slightly older than they were the day before. That’s the real meat of existence, yet almost no one addresses it in song anymore. No one, that is, except Tim Kasher.
A new song from Cursive frontman Kasher, called “Truly Freaking Out,” has recently been made available for streaming worldwide. The song is the latest single to surface of Kasher’s upcoming album, Adult Film and, as we teased in the intro, addresses life beyond one’s early ’20s. You can stream the song at the end of this post.
Kasher has grown up in music, all the way from his late teen years through his current life as a 30-something adult, clearly thinking far more about family. With “Truly Freaking Out,” it seems the quickness with which time has passed is finally starting to hit him. Hard. Still, there remains a silver lining to the message Kasher has to share, and coupled with brilliant instrumentation those lyrics leave you feeling comfortable with the fact we’ll all one day take our final bow.
Adult Film hits stores at the end of September. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on “Truly Freaking Out.” Continue reading ‘Tim Kasher Debuts “Truly Freaking Out”’
