Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter The Sometimes Island (a.k.a. Matt Blankenship Jr.) recently released his new single "Bad People."
A vibrant electro-pop dream, "Bad People" is stamped with Blankenship Jr.'s signature harmonies, airy beats, and pensive lyrics. The song is the title track from his upcoming EP, which is scheduled for release on July 28.
"What are bad people anyway?" he ponders. "It's easier to imagine everything in black and white, but in reality, there's so much grey in between. Shockingly, it's easy for most people to look at a homeless person on the street and think 'that's not my problem and they probably got what they deserved'. We are all connected, and I wrote this song about how people come to accept the labels they are given when instead they can break the cycle, tap into their potential and transform their lives. We're all bad people, and we are all good people."
