Today I’m thrilled to bring everyone the latest single from synth-pop artist The Scary Jokes called “Uzumaki.” The song is about vivid dreams of past failed relationships, wanting everything to be okay, as well as the painful realization of reality when you wake up from dreaming. With a sound truly to their own, The Scary Jokes make a solid impression on the “bedroom pop” genre. The Scary Jokes shared:
”Uzumaki” was inspired by having recurring dreams about people you’ve had a falling out with. You just want things to be okay like they are in the dream but you wake up and you’re still not friends with that person. When I have dreams like that, all the context for why we’re not friends anymore is inaccessible in that moment. But as soon as you wake up and have some clarity, everything comes rushing to the forefront of your brain. I often get frustrated by the senselessness of making an enemy. I don’t want to have enemies; I want to be friends with everyone. “Uzumaki” is about those feelings being at odds with each other.
The song comes from their forthcoming LP, Retinal Bloom, out everywhere music is sold on May 26th.
