A blast into the deepest parts of Michael’s psyche, the musician’s single “Nothing Makes Sense” is brimming with raw and relatable emotions. Reminding us that we are not alone in our life battles and feelings of frustration, Michael bridges any gap between himself and the listener with hard-hitting lyrics such as “I wanna scream at the top of my lungs, but I just hold it in, keep on smiling”. The alt-rock foundation shines through with the smooth electric guitars and driving bass line that soaks the track before the unexpected punch of electricity, fired up with thrashing drums, prevail in the chorus.
The humble star unleashes a sea of heartfelt lyrics that suspends us in a timeless space of self-reflection in which we can’t help but take pleasure in Michael’s mellow voice and deep lyricism. Speaking on the track the star comments: “Nothing Makes Sense” is a song about the struggles of understanding everyday life. It is easy to feel pressure from social media, confusion from your news feed and uncertainty over each decision you have to make, even with the most optimistic mindset self-doubt can be unavoidable. I know my shortcomings, my strengths and weaknesses and I have realised all I can do is try my best even if the world around me seems chaotic’.
Michael’s passion for music and unprecedented ability to merge enthralling instrumentals with deep-centred lyrics is the base on which his newest single “Nothing makes sense” is built upon.
