Premiere: FLAVIA lives up to her name with the rich, colorful “I Don’t Wanna Be Here”
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve done a song premiere around these parts. Fortunately for us (and you all), we came across a fun little ditty from LA’s FLAVIA.
When I read that “Her live shows are a sonic and visual experience with colorful light and projection displays,” that caught my eye right away, as I’m a very visual person. As a music lover who has had a lifelong hearing impairment, the whole experience that comes with a song is paramount to my enjoyment.
FLAVIA’s songs are chock full of themes relatable to the human experience at large. And, like so many other of her peers, FLAVIA chooses a cheery outlet for a heavy topic. “I Don’t Wanna Be Here” is a jarring title that can be taken a number of different ways, but no matter how you take it, we advise you to enjoy it for the bop that it is.
Isn’t that the goal of a lot of pop music? No matter how the message comes across, enjoy it for what it is. Enjoy the fun elements with the serious ones, not in spite of them.
