Common Goldfish‘s debut song “Feel The Fuzz” is here to keep the buzz going. The composition mixes Alt-Rock and Melodic Pop to create a jazzy and mellow tune.
Throughout the song, common goldfish showcases his skills and his passion for the 90s –for some, a reminiscing, nostalgic era to look back to, for others, an unknown phase in time. Either way, “Feel The Fuzz” successfully translates this decade was all about within 3:44 minutes.
The lyrics talk about how life turns into this hamster wheel and how there is no point in trying to win the fights.
However, plot twist: to break free, you need to be innovative, ignore the materialistic routine, and look out for moments and experiences that make you happy.
“The track embodies the sense of dreamer’s optimism (“the fuzz”) and the feeling that led me to change career paths and pursue my passion in music. Although we only lead one life, Feel the Fuzz is about helping people see that they should value their experiences over materials and not always seek the easy options in life.” –common goldfish.
