Inspired by his time as a ghostwriter for Disney and Nickelodeon,
GAREK takes the gloves off for his newest release.
Rock N’ Roll singer-songwriter GAREK released his new song and video for “Goddamn Dizzy Kids” earlier today.
With “Goddamn Dizzy Kids” GAREK positions himself as the new Anti-Pop Star, fighting to break the mold of cookie-cutter predictability in today’s music industry. He takes the formula so often used in today’s pop music: a bright, bouncy chorus with a catchy hook and spins it into something so quintessentially GAREK- sinister, sarcastic, but still highly listenable.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, GAREK made his transition to New York in 2010 to pursue a career in music. He landed an internship at a music production house writing and singing demos for the likes of Disney and Nickelodeon. Quickly disenchanted with the assembly-line mentality of today’s hit makers and songwriters, GAREK took what he learned and applied it to a scathing critique of today’s music culture in “Goddamn Dizzy Kids”. As a ghostwriter gone rogue, GAREK steps out from behind the money-making machine and gives the middle finger to commercialized music and the corporations behind it.
“I was tired of making music for the machine. So, instead of feeding the machine, I set out to starve it. For “Goddamn Dizzy Kids”, I used the formulas I was privy to as a ghostwriter (big, bouncy choruses, bright, catchy hooks and contemptible, chantey nonsense), but used it in a way that allowed me to spread my message. I refuse to settle for the sea of mediocrity that has become the standard for this generation’s music.”
The video accompanying the song sees GAREK in pursuit of a strangely familiar rodent, as well as a spoof of a not-so-anonymous Pop Star’s underwear shoot…
