What: Figure It Out
Listen to it when you are: Lost in your thoughts:
Why it’s LOWD: This is Goldsmith’s first track of his debut EP! What we dig the most about this track is the amazing flow, one word flowing into the next one, and just the sheer realness of it all. Many of us are at a point in their lives where they are tryna figure out themselves and what they plan to do with their lives. Follow your gut or follow your brain? The NY artist explains what this song means to him exclusively for THATLOWD:
I wrote this song during the middle of my Senior year, during a time when I was nearing the end of college and trying to figure out my life after school. I was trying to figure out what career I wanted to pursue, where I wanted to live, how much I wanted to pursue music, and mostly what type of person I wanted to be. I think it’s easy at this point in one’s life to fall into the trap of just choosing the path that you think is most expected of you, rather than looking inside yourself and asking what’s most important to you. Growing up, I got a lot of messages from the media and my environment about what was cool or not cool, what I should or shouldn’t be doing. I feel like it takes time to know exactly what you want, and through my experiences I’ve found out that taking risks and putting myself in uncomfortable positions has made me learn a lot more about myself than laying low and playing it safe.
