Pop-Punk seems like a contradiction, but for many, it was their soundtrack to growing up.
Arcane Ghosts breathes new life into the genre and keeps it alive with their latest release: Butterfly.
Jason Diaz admits that changing the recipe that got them 500k plays on Spotify for Petrified “is always a concern” but they feel they are at the point in their career “to take this next logical step.”
The band brings increased layers and melody to the mix, creating a very sing-a-long song complete with “mosh pit” moments.
As Jason sings “say it’s all in my head” over and over, we begin to understand the meaning behind the words.
For Jason, it’s about “different perspectives” and “assumptions.”
It’s easy for someone on the outside to brush away your thoughts and feelings, saying it’s all in your head.
“People can sometimes see things in themselves or in others that they believe to be true, but aren’t necessarily accurate”, continues Jason.
It’s important for us to validate our own inner thoughts and own those feelings. Yet, it is equally important to follow the advice of one of my favorite quotes:
“You can’t see the label from inside the jar.”
By letting others look in, we can better understand what we might not see from our own perspective.
Unfortunately, Social Media algorithms feed the perspective we have adopted, and reinforces it, leading to an us vs them attitude.
Maybe we should all listen to Butterfly so we can transform and embrace different perspectives, creating a better understanding of one another.
