EXCUSE ME THIS IS MY FAVORITE SONG OF 2018 AND FOREVER OF ALL TIME. WIG SNATCHED. WE STAN ONE MAN. TRUST ME.
I'm not a fan of the Kardashians by any means, but the headlines from Kylie's insane birthday party were sure as hell hard to miss; plus I love a good scandal in the name of art...or armadillo tears. Honestly, I don't know.
This man was at the root of them, and I'm genuinely fascinated by him. His name is LUMiN and he is notorious for getting into the most absurd dilemmas. Footage of him running from the cops was leaked and he was later arrested. Now he's out of jail and making dope music? I am confused af but also here for it. He's made music for DVBBS and Terror Jr, but he's taking the spotlight for himself this year, and he's exactly what 2018 needs.
His style is insane and it bleeds into his music; it sounds like nothing else. The purpose of this post is his new single because it's somehow bigger than all of his scandals. It's called "iDWF" (I Don't Wanna Feel). I couldn't accurately put into words how good it is, so I asked a couple friends. Every answer was completely different, which is the coolest part about his music. It's like if you could speak a mood ring; they all gave me a different description. So far, my favorites: "it's an eclectic blend of pop, indie and alternative that you can't stop listening to no matter how hard you try" and "he sounds like Ed Sheeran and Marshmello had a baby". His music is so dope and different. The lyrics are honest and raw but open for interpretation. I'm the kind of person that reads deep into lyrics and makes the lines personal, and with his music, you have the freedom to do that. If you aren't that type of person, there's still a deep groove that stays with you. It's the kind of music you can play on repeat and find something new every time. Listen for yourself.
