On the Subject of Subjectivity
Our band’s first single comes out in two days. It wasn’t meant to be our first single, but people seemed very positive about the video for the song. So, we’re in this uncanny valley of taste and uncertainty now. Will new people find us and enjoy the music? Will anyone listen at all, or will it just fall onto the pile of songs taking up digital space?
Full disclosure: I think we’re really good, and I think our music is really good.
But that doesn’t matter even a little bit. Musical taste is subjective. Some people want to hear a band like ours. Some people want to hear a louder band. Some people want to hear someone singing along with a showtune backing track.
Two days until we start to find out whether our kind of broken is meaningful for any others.
