If you are not blackout drunk, throwing up, about to get laid, or stuffing tacos after the party, then there’s only one thing left to do: question your life. Specifically, all the irresponsible decisions you’ve made – like dropping your phone, wasting your 20s…you name it. Aussie artist Akurei boxes us into that existential epiphany in his song “Ride Home,” which is literally about re-examining your existence on the way from the party. It’s smooth and slow-burning, but there is an undeniable buoyancy to it. Yes, there is some sadness in the air but also the realization that it’s not too late to turn things around.. Stream below:

“Lyrically, the song covers a kind of epiphany I’d had while walking home from a party one night, about the way I’d been living and the decision to change that.” shared Akurei.

“Ride Home” is from Akurei’s debut EP, which will be out in the upcoming months so stay tuned.
