CloudKid Presents Lani Daye - Ghost Town
Lani Daye’s final track before his EP drop of the same name, ‘ghost town,’ is a soft yet upbeat, nostalgic yet dreamy, energetic yet cathartic track solidifying Lani’s position as an artist on the rise in the indie, bedroom alt and pop space, about wanting “to be different while watching everyone around you kinda follow similar paths.”
He continues, “The song is an interesting one as it’s told from the perspective of speaking to someone who you have a history of chasing dreams with. It describes being in a situation where you want to get out and change something for yourself for the better; about feeling stuck in a place where everyone has already kind of given up on themselves and expects you to do the same because it’s what everyone does — it’s the standard in the environment you’re from. But the song also shows optimism and shifts toward wanting to be different, while watching everyone around you follow similar, regressive paths. They try to give you advice, but you feel their advice is bringing you down because they’re not actively doing anything meaningful for themselves and don’t know how to offer valuable insight for you to chase your dreams.”
»Their advice is actually just bringing you down...«
