JOHN WAR RELEASES “PLURALS”

“Plurals” is an indie rock song with gauzy, retromodern features and a singer-songwriter core. Influenced equally by Car Seat Headrest, J Dilla, Frank Ocean & the Avalanches, it sequences between lo-fi rock verses, slick modern choruses, and hazy, homespun plunderphonics.

“I originally wrote this song in 2017 about the end of a relationship, but I recently heard it again and realized it’s more about how the internet’s starting to change my relationships in general. Our culture’s endless content loop is making us addicted to immediate gratification, and it gives us overwhelmingly layered expectations for everything and everyone. When you have a lens on the whole world, it can be hard to not want more. But who’s to say you shouldn’t? In the context of this song, it sucks to find your partner has romantic FOMO, but what if it leads to positive change for both of you? Is love a finite resource? I don’t know. But if we can’t opt out of our chaotic reality, maybe we can at least learn to see the entropy as a good thing.” – John War
