LUMiN Introduces New Sounds For the New Decade With His Latest Single “The Worst Thing”

Los Angeles based artist LUMiN is kicking off the decade with his sixth single “The Worst Thing”. Unlike his previous singles, “The Worst Thing” delivers an upbeat synth arrangement that brings a fresh approach to nostalgic sounds, created in part by co-producer Blake Healy of American Pop-Rock band Metro Station. The song introduces a fun, danceable feeling right from the start which serves as a contrast to his somber, self-reflective lyrics. LUMiN’s lyrics lead us through the re-entry of someone in his life who quickly became the worst thing for him. Previous to this, LUMiN considered himself to be his worst influence; meeting his worst enemy however, would quickly restore his faith in himself. Listen here

“You are the worst thing that’s happened to me / And I thank you for taking the place that I was saving for me”

The person in question is a typical energy vampire, pitting other peoples demons against them as an open invitation to join in their misery. If you’ve ever met someone who makes you feel trapped, this song is for you. The bouncy, electronic production will lure you in and the relatable lyrics will make you stay until the very end. LUMiN seemed to have reached a state of inner peace until someone came in and shook up his universe; the journey depicts the transition from self-hate and thinking he himself is unhealthy to then realizing that maybe this person is actually the unhealthy one. Making the mature decision to prioritize his mental health, he leaves a bad situation fully knowing that there are better days ahead.

“Please believe me, I would only leave you if I felt like it was necessary for my mental health / And now I’m at a breakthrough, I hate you.”
