Author's Note: SEB's new music is taking a trip back to the 80s-Qincy Jones-pop era with his new song. Read more as the LA-based artist's “fuck it, im the man” emerged with reeks of nostalgia and the meaning of the song. 

LA-based artist SEB has shared “fuck it, im the man” (via Mom+Pop), on which the nascent pop artist evokes a home-fi spin on the 80’s Quincy Jones sound. The song follows last year’s “god of the sunsets” single and the IT’S OKAY, WE’RE DREAMING EP, dual manifestations of his genre-eschewing sound that owes as much to Joni Mitchell as to Tyler the Creator (and the latter of which featured his breakthrough hit “seaside_demo”). His diverse influences serve as a reflection of his varied background, coming up in Chicago after hopping between New York, Haiti, Oklahoma, and Miami, before making the move to LA to focus on his music career. 

"This song is about standing on your own and living your life according to you and only you,” states SEB. “After a blowout argument, I ended up having to permanently cut off family members who did nothing but tell me how much of a disappointment I was. In the chorus I’m trying to be exuberant and confident but that’s only to mask the pain I'm feeling in the verses. From talking to people around me, I know I'm definitely not the only one who’s gone through this. I want fans who are living through that, to feel empowered to do them, regardless of what anybody has to say."

The new single opens the door to the next chapter of SEB’s music, with a new body of work expected in the coming months from Mom+Pop Music.
