Has anyone ever felt the urge to get into their car late at night, drive to a mountain top that overlooks a city, then watch modern-day society revel in its madness? I have, and these occasions only occur when I’m at rock bottom. When the self-esteem levels are low, and the depression is slowly creeping in. I observe the overindulging, the narcissistic and egotistical characters, all while grappling internal negative thoughts. It’s not healthy, but it’s a coping mechanism. Fortunately, I now have a soundtrack to accompany these reflective nights. I Don’t Play Like That (Don’t Give A Fuck) by Wanna Be Brothers is a song that revolves around deprivation, doubt and self-esteem.
As soon as you press play, Nis Madsen’s softly spoken words wrap themselves around you, providing a comforting hug for those melancholy days. His lyrics talk about a relationship full of love, doubt and drama: “Girl you changed the state of the art. You’re all he ever wanted, and we know it”. It’s not all doom and gloom though. Towards the end of I Don’t Play Like That (Don’t Give A Fuck), Madsen proclaims “Ohh I don’t play like that, I don’t play. I don’t give a fuck” in a self-assured manner. He has moved on and refers to the past as one of life’s lessons.
Wanna Be Brothers have gathered together the most sensitive sounds, wrote up some clever lyrics and delicately pressed them together to make a folk-pop masterpiece. Give I Don’t Play Like That (Don’t Give A Fuck) a listen now! You won’t be left disappointed.
