Known for his roles in Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars, Ansel is a talented dude. I thought he played the role of Augustus Waters perfectly and I’ve never seen him DJ, but I’m sure he’s great.
AND I just discovered, he was born almost exactly a month after me in New York. I don’t know the significance of this but idk I’m pretty stoked about it.
So, in late July I was scrolling on Twitter and saw through a sponsored ad that he had released a single.
WHAT?? I had no idea he sang/even did anything musical at all. I was honestly kind of annoyed. Like OK you’re a famous actor, really attractive, AND musically talented? Plz stop.
So I was excited to listen to this song.
**don’t try riding a bike on a country road with a hoodie blocking your vision, no matter how ~kewl~ it looks, kids**
It’s a pretty bold move to release the first single that’s under your actual name when you have a large following as an actor. Previously Ansel Elgort released tracks through pseudonyms Ansolo and a collaboration called Shirts & Skins. So the bar is set pretty high, no? This is gonna be good.
Yup, you heard me right.
It sounds like something you come up with when you’re first playing around with your Yamaha keyboard you got for Christmas.
Which sounds like something you come up with when you’re first playing around with GarageBand on your new Macbook Pro you also got for Christmas.
I know the lyrics don’t have to be brilliant for this type of song but COME ON. It’s so whiney and a little desperate and kinda creepy. “I don’t wanna go home alone” is probably the least unique song idea anyone could ever come up with.
This is arguably the worst part of the song. It gets all stripped down/simple again like it’s gonna be all deep and he literally sings:
“And the bullshit fades away” TWICE.
His voice is actually pretty good. It’s deeper than I expected and kind of unique. Sometimes it sounds a bit weird though and he seemingly has little to no range. I’d also be curious to hear him sing live.
There’re parts of the drop that are a tiny bit jam worthy. And it’s a relief from the horrible words.
However, in conclusion, this song is terrible. Just trust me on this.
