The Neighbourhood is an American rock band formed in 2011. One of their songs called ‘Softcore’ went viral on TikTok and Instagram. The song was released on 9th March 2018.
Through this song, the vocalist is expressing how he feels about his love life which is going through a bit of turmoil. Being part of a band, he is always on the run and travelling several places, while his loved one stays at home.
The lyrics explain the twisted emotions the vocalist is going through. While his lover is vital to him and keeps his morale high, excess of her makes him feel drained. The situation is weird where in he feels high and low at the same time. But, he knows that he would miss her if he were to leave her.
His tour and travel affects their love life, but he knows that he has to do it regardless. At the same time, he is consumed with his own life. He is an artist and loves to create music.
He is mostly lost in his own world while trying to be creative. This might lead to further problems between him and his lover. Perhaps, he is trying to strike a healthy balance between his purpose and his partner.
Overall, the song is great in terms of melody, rhythm etc. Let me know what you guys think of the song.
