A car with a masked driver, open windows, banging on the bass, a dystopian choir operating in the summer air are rolling into the street: Do you have antidotes? Do you want to be with me? It’s a new song this summer, thanks to, uh, the boy who played Cousin Greg Succession.
Historically, it has been necessary for an apocalypse, such as climate change, to become a summer loop. But hey, if nothing else, 2020 is moving fast.
The song got its start in May when actor Nicholas Braun (aka Cousin Greg) was quarantined with friends, according to Rolling Stone. where the song premiered today.
“My friends are a couple and they̵7;ve been together for years, but I’ve been there kind of like, ‘Man, I wish I had someone here to go through this,'” Braun said. Rolling Stone, “And so this girl and I talked and we wanted, ‘Maybe we should go meet and go for a walk – with clothes. “So I went to this quarantine day; it was a bit of a secret because I didn’t want my friends to know. And I think the combination of paranoia and romance is about that song.”
Braun issued a “call to the wild” – Instagram – and called on his musically inclined followers to help him with the idea of singing. He seems to have hit the chord since the boy, they responded. It was recorded by record labels Atlantic Records and turned into a professionally produced song and music video Rolling Stone.
The bandanas that inspired the song will appear in the music video. Instagram fans will do the same. And hand disinfectant. And clips from COVID press conferences. And masks. Escape from our current reality is not the case. But it’s surprisingly catchy.
He even manages to work on the scientific uncertainty that has become a feature of the pandemic. Following a very problematic line I want to know that your blood contains substances / things that cleanse you clarifies Although we don’t know what it means / TO GET IT.
Pure poetry. Also accurate.
Braun’s 81-year-old father had COVID-19 and recovered, according to him Rolling Stone, Proceeds from the song will go to the non-profit organizations COPE and Partners in Health.
Mask on, mask on, mask on.
