Auws, Party In The Dark

Video: Auws – Party In The Dark

In Hip Hop by Nick Russell

Having some sort of social anxiety is bad enough as it is. Let alone having to talk about it or explain it to people. How are you supposed to explain that something seemingly pleasant and desirable creates a fight or flight response within you? Typically those with it just pretend not to have it or try to avoid situations that may trigger it. They start seeming different, a buzzkill, weird or even rude. On ‘Party in the dark’, Auws expresses his own social anxiety and encourages others to do so also, and let them know they aren’t alone in these feelings.

He delivers emotive lyrics  in a sombre way, which worked really well with the beat. The mood of the vocal delivery really set the tone and it was dope to see how the visual set the tone too!
