LA newcomer SEB has dropped a brand new single, the Really Very Good ‘THEY DON’T LIKE ME’.
The track – on which SEB writes, produces, performs and engineers everything, the clever sausage – is a delightfully chilled, laidback jam, upon which he muses on what others expect of him, and how to process that.
“‘THEY DON’T LIKE ME’ is a song about the struggle of acceptance, both inward and outward,” SEB explains. “Half of the song is talking about what I think people want from me, the other half is how I’ve internalized that. I’m essentially taking control of who I want to be, and what I want to create regardless of what people want for me.”
“Everybody had this certain expectation of me and then when I started making music people thought I was probably going to do rap with trap beats, especially growing up in Chicago,” he continues. “This song is me saying ‘you all want me to do this, but if I went over here and tried something different would you still like me?’”
Yes SEB. Yes we would.
