At just 21-years old, he has a knack for inducing nostalgia through multi-era works that lend to a DIY style yet are perfectly produced. On the new track, rouri404 shares, “Flipping Good Charlotte’s ‘The Anthem’ on its head with drum ‘n bass and math rock isn’t something I ever expected to do, but it might be my new personal favorite track. I started this one just blurting out ideas until I said ‘I would never wanna be just like you’ and it hit really hard. We based the drop section around that and crafted the rest of the song from there. Production was a really big focus on ‘spit’, trying our best to keep the sound raw and unrelenting while also being super cohesive. I wanted the listener to feel something during the drops, keeping the mental image of a car smashing into a brick wall or getting hit with a bat for the drop while creating it.”
