[ELECTRONIC/POP] ON PLANETS – “TOO BAD / SO SAD”
We’re super excited to be sharing the second single from On Planets‘ debut EP on Majestic Casual Records. The track is titled “Too Bad / So Sad.” We’ve been big fans of his sound for awhile now and every time we hear a new release, it’s such a treat to see how he continues to evolve his sound.
Finding a unique way to stand out in the chaos of the electronic music scene is quite the challenge these days, but On Planets seems to grasp little aspects of popular sounds and slide them into his own original blend. The beat hits hard once the track really finds its’ stride, opening up like clouds making way for the sun after a storm. His use of delicate synths and subtle percussion are so important to the overall structure of the song. It takes a few a listens to really see how much attention to detail he puts into the song. He’s an artist who clearly chooses every element carefully and with purpose. We dig that attitude and it comes through from start to finish. Stream this gem below and download the track here.
Here’s what Sean had to say about the track:
“This one is a bit of a hyperbolic depiction of doubt, mostly in the context of lifestyle, career, etc. At the time I was writing the track, I had some doubt in my own integrity and worth, so I wanted to embody that melodramatic, ridiculous shit I came up with in my head. ‘Too Bad / So Sad’ is just about how easy it is to marinate yourself in bad vibes.”
