Dayglow, aka Sloan Struble, muses on the absurdity of social media and how it can distort our own identities in his new single “Something.” Taken from his upcoming record Harmony House, “Something” dissects the excessive materialism that saturate our online feeds and the unhappiness such superficial perceptions can cause. The song comes with a chromatic video animated and directed by Drew Tyndell. Check it out:

“I was scrolling through Instagram one day, and I was thinking about how dumb social media gets sometimes, and how materialistic and advertisement driven our culture’s identity statement is becoming. The line ‘if what makes you someone is something, then why can’t I have mine?’ sums that up pretty well. Stuff is never going to fulfill us, yet we are always wanting more and more and it’s just such an unfortunate waste of time. People always act like they are victims of time, but we have to make the most of the time we have. It’s so hard to see that considering how distracted everyone is by their own little curated echo chambers of media and content.”

Harmony House will be out on May 21st.
