Sunday Music: Emo Kids Going Sober In Song (w/ Future Teens)

Future Teens have a new album out, and the self-described “bummer pop” band has a real gem in “BYOB” about struggling with sobriety. I feel like this is exactly what emo kids getting older is supposed to sound and feel like. A couple of lines from the lyrics with the video below:

If you bring your old bullshit

You’ll just be your own bad luck

You can be your own burden

Won’t be worth betting on

No one’s fault, but it’s my problem

Feeling best when I feel nothing

How long have I been at the bottom?

Feeling best when I feel nothing

Still rolling out of bed each morning

Feeling best when I feel nothing

Taking wins where I can get ’em

Feeling bad, at least it’s something
