Review: "I Don't Care." - Yoyo Nagase
Ever wake up in the morning and can't decide what to wear, or what to eat. How about all those times where you think back to a situation from years ago, and rethink everything you did. It's this over-analysis that is the topic of Yoyo Nagase's smooth new track "I Don't Care." Inspired by all of those thoughts and moments of indecisiveness, Nagase creates one of the smoothest and most relatable songs to come out this year.
The track features a smooth, almost soft-pop vibe. Instrumentation ranges from instruments such as drums that almost sound like bongos, saxophone, acoustic guitar, and shakers. Each instrument plays into the vibe of the track as it feels very atmospheric. The track also features three other artists, Pluto Koi, A Kid Named Rufus, and Pretty Havoc. Each artist brings their own flare to the track in the forms of vocals or instumentation. The lyrics delve into the topic of overthinking, and even Nagase said they "started to overthink the lyrics." Throughout the track Nagase discusses the topic of random thoughts they've had about situations that might've happened years ago. It's this indecisiveness that drives the track, to the point that Nagase's chorus gives us exactly what happens when your mind feels like a jumbled mess in the form of la's, "La la la la la // I don't care so I'll just."
Yoyo Nagase is an up-and-coming indie pop artist based in New Haven, Connecticut. "I Don't Care.," is Nagase's second single of 2022. It follows his track "Rewind" from March of this year. "I Don't Care." is also the first of two singles that are set to feature fellow artists Pluto Koi, A Kid Named Rufus, and Pretty Havoc. Nagase got his start back in 2020 with his debut single "City Lights." With a knack for blending the smooth sounds of R&B with the brightness of pop, Nagase is shaping up to create a career set for the stars.
