Rubber – Synth Pop Idol [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words


Tell us a few things about your new song “Synth Pop Idol”. What is the story behind it?

‘Synth Pop Idol’ is a song about identity, “don’t wanna be a synth pop idol, don’t wanna have the hips or smile” deals directly with the pressures I face as the front-person of the band to be skinny, bubbly, consumable. This song is a statement. I am an imperfect narrator, a jester, a musician, an artist, but in no way an idol. It is one of 2 singles being released in October that felt like they needed to come out before we dug in and started serious work on the debut album.

Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

“Peace offer get smarter, I’m a highwayman. Case closer blind robber taking everything I can”
