Music Review //
JETSETFOREVR
"Sober"



The subject of being sober is one that is not to be taken lightly, but JETSETFOREVR seems to have found a way to discuss it here without taking the side of those who would be on either side of it.   On one hand, this could be seen as a party song in some way- a sort of end of the night song that would play at the end of a movie soundtrack such as "Can't Hardly Wait".   But at the very same time, it doesn't have to be about drinking at all.

There is a line in here that says "I'm scared of getting older" and I think the song is about that in a lot of ways.  Sometimes, you drink because you want to be able to do the things you could do when you were younger- you want to relive those glory days- but as you get older, perhaps your alcohol tolerance changes as well.  We have to accept, all of us, that at some point in our lives we're not going to be out there partying the same way we once were.

During this music video, the main character sits on the couch as the party goes on around them.  I think this just goes to show that sometimes the scene that you might have once felt like you were a part of isn't your scene any more.  And it doesn't have to be the fault of anyone, it just sometimes comes down to growing older and things changing in that regard.

This song makes me think about Post Malone, if only because of that song he did for "Into The Spider-Verse", but it also makes me think of blackbear because of how much I listen to blackbear.   But there is this general vibe of hip hop that's mixed with pop music.  It could be on the mainstream radio, closing out parties and just closing out the night in general because we're all getting older.
