If you’ve ever been called a “freak” in the past, then you understand how difficult it can be to allow yourself to be vulnerable in your relationships. To be your authentic self means to take a necessary risk because it is important to feel pride in your uniqueness. The latest release by artist Stillyoung, “Freak Like Me,” delves into that feeling of being completely open with another person, but also emphasizes the importance of staying true to yourself and embracing what makes you a “freak”. The song itself is a fun indie pop anthem with bright guitars that deliver a perfect summer’s day. “Freak Like Me” is a song that is necessary because it influences the need to be real and vulnerable in our relationships in order to grow into the person that we were meant to be.

“Freak Like Me” is driven by such a pure pop sound that uplifts you the way the intent of the song’s story does. However, there is still a feeling of mellowness that comes in the form of the gentle and smooth vocal performance. One of the most important aspects of this is the themes of trust and trusting one another through the good and bad parts of each other, It’s about managing the difficulties and putting faith and one another. “We’ve got all the time in the world if you choose to trust a freak like me” presents this idea directly, as it expresses how no matter one’s quirks, these relationships can thrive if you choose to wholly trust each other. Overall, “Freak Like Me” is completely infection the way the tune sticks in your head and there’s so much fun to be had with it.

Stillyoung is an artist from California and “Freak Like Me” is the first release and it perfectly gives us a presentation of what’s to come for Stillyoung. This music project marks a new chapter for founding member Jeff Wright as he has been open about working on himself to reach a better place in his life. As clearly presented by “Freak Like Me,” Stillyoung has a level of authenticity that can often be overwhelming, but still very necessary. What Stillyoung has done is create a safe and introspective space to help listeners understand themselves better and feel safe enough to be themselves. Stillyoung plans to perform shows in California in September and plans to release more music soon, so keep your eyes open as to where Stillyoung goes next.
