Brooklyn, NY nuke wave artist Monograms (aka multi-instrumentalist Ian Jacobs) has revealed the video for his latest single “Carry The Weight“.
The track features on his recent album ‘A Fine Commitment‘, released last month, June 16 via PaperCup Music. Grab your copy copy here.
A song about overcoming the intensity of the world when its relentless traffic becomes all too much, Jacobs explained:
“I wrote Carry The Weight at a time about a year ago when I was really just taking everything on. Everything in my life: My past, My future, My present. While also taking on my day-to-day: You’re tired, you’re wide awake, you’re horny, you’re lazy, you’re hungry, you’re full, you have money, you’re broke, you’re happy, you’re sad. Sometimes all that noise can be a bit too much of a buzz. Other days it’s totally fine.”
“The lyrics are specifically about how I have no idea where that weight goes when it goes away, or if it really does go away? How we overcome things, or why some things we internalize while other times we decide to unpack s**t to others to quiet the noise. But I realize most of the time that weight is just based on my mood or my perspective, I think a lot of other people are probably like that too.”
