Bryce Vine drops a somber new track and music video to let everyone know “Life Goes On.”
The song was written in an “attempt to put the pieces back together after realizing how truly unpredictable (and often unforgiving) the universe can be” after the untimely death of NBA superstar Kobe Bryant earlier this year.
“Kobe was almost like a superhero, especially for black kids,” Bryce said in a press release. “I thought the reward for that would be more, so it really shook my faith in good individuals getting what they deserve. After two days, I was going through it. I vented on “Life Goes On.” I said things that made me feel better in the moment about the situation. When I listen to it, it still makes me feel better.”
“Life Goes On” serves as the second single off Bryce’s upcoming Problems EP, following the release of the EP’s quarantine-inspired title track in May.
Bryce says this “honest and heartstrung” EP captures his eloquent observations, instrumentation, catchy confessions, and his emotionally charged yet delicate delivery.
“It’s what I do,” he admitted. “I never want to make the same song twice. A lot of this music was inspired while I was sitting by myself in my room during quarantine with nothing else to do but get better at guitar. That’s how I wrote as a kid in the living room or in my garage. It was a return to that.”
Problems arrives on Friday, August 21.
