Song Bio

Label: AWAL

Party Ghost was an old favorite of mine (Restless Modern) from the SoundCloud days.  I noticed that he commented on one of my other singles ("Chasing") and we started talking from there.  Chris (PG) sent over a bunch of demo instrumentals and I picked out one called "Free" to work with and write around.  That eventually became the track that you're hearing now, and we're stoked with how it turned out.

Restless Modern Bio

While Restless Modern made his debut with production work on “Navigator,” a pop single that has been streamed over 9 million times, the young artist didn’t put out his first self-produced, self-written, and self-performed work until late that year. “I’m Okay” was the first single off of his To Come Undone EP, a dark and introspective body of work that has accumulated over 1.3M streams since its independent release in early 2018. “It’s always been my goal to handle every part of the music myself. When I’m making the productions, writing the lyrics, and singing the songs, I can get as close to my vision as possible.”

Restless Modern, aka Jack Kieffer, cites artists like EDEN, The 1975, and Blackbear as key influences, though he is cautious to describe himself in terms of others. “Every single day is about improvement and differentiation. I listen to and study the art that I love, but my job is to create something that no other artist can create. Something that is unique to my perspective and my abilities - so that’s what I’m shooting for.” Having graduated from Harvard University in May of this year, Jack has big plans for the future: “focusing full-time on Restless Modern in NYC after graduation is raising the stakes higher than they’ve ever been before. I have no option other than to make this music thing work - so that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”

LYRICS

You did it right

Rolled me under the brake lights

Threw me into the spotlight

You knew I needed that

 

So I come again

Killed the habits that owned me

Got it done cuz you showed me

What I was holding back

 

In myself I cried wolf

Look at all the things i’m changing

Swear that I’ll never be patient

Forced to wait thats nothing new

 

It’s nothing new

It’s nothing new

It’s nothing new

 

We could be free

Take me back, I’m sober

Since 20 1 3

I’ve grown so much older

 

And let it be known

Some things won’t leave me

But hey now

We could be free

Get your things and I’ll show you how

 

Block out the night

When everything wasnt worth it

I drowned and now I gotta resurface

Hold my breath so my head feels light

 

And I come again

Cut the heart out my problems

Easier than someone trying to solve them

More room for you again

 

In myself I cried wolf

Look at all the things i’m changing

Swear that I’ll never be patient

Forced to wait thats nothing new

 

It’s nothing new

And I’d give it all for one chance to prove

I’ve fucking done what I had to do

I’ve dragged the sun from behind the moon

 

We could be free

Take me back, I’m sober

Since 20 1 3

I’ve grown so much older

 

And let it be known

Some things won’t leave me

But hey now

We could be free

Get your things and I’ll show you how

 

(leave me behind)

 

Leaves that roll the water

The part of me that said im fine

Leave me behind

Seas that go across the

World and cut the rocks in time

Changing my mind

 

We could be free

Take me back, I’m sober

Since 20 1 3

I’ve grown so much older

 

And let it be known

Some things won’t leave me

Hey now

We could be free

Get your things and I’ll show you how
