SCRNS – TTYN

TTYNTTYN4

I can’t stop listening to this fantastically subversive pop song called “TTYN” (which I believe stands for “Talk To You Never”) by SCRNS, a brand-spanking-new duo from Minneapolis. The satirical lyrics suggest conformity and mindlessly working for the Man:

Set your goals/ Get your cash/ and forget all your friends.

But the explosive beat, playful melody and the party-like atmosphere of the video suggest that doing the exact opposite is way more fun. I love the breakdown after the chorus. It takes the gentle lullaby-like melody that starts the song off and shakes it from its slumber, suggesting that if you or your friends start acting too full of themselves you should remind them what it is that makes life really worth living.
