Neon Dreams have released their new single Sick of Feeling Useless and the accompanying video.
“Before every session, we try to talk about how we’re feeling,” says vocalist Frank Kadillac. “At this point, before the song was made, we were discussing with our good friend and collaborator Nathaniel Motte from the band 3OH3! about how it’s easy to feel helpless…like nothing we do matters that much. Then Nat said ‘ya know…I think everyone is just sick of feeling useless.’ It hit so hard with me because I felt that way my whole life growing up, I felt useless until I broke out of my shell…if my fans are different versions of me this is the biggest thing that connects us on this island of misfit toys. People that feel like they don’t matter in this world and are constantly searching for a place to belong, a place that makes them feel like a kid again.”
The accompanying video is a creative combination of 2,474 images, forming a stop motion visual that sees Kadillac and drummer Adrian Morris performing their new release. Praise has been given for its 90’s/2000’s MTV/TRL era aesthetics but also love for the song’s nostalgic tones.
