Keatsu’s self-ironic track ‘Clown’ explores dark themes of identity and the desire for validation. The song celebrates the power of humour and comedy – a defence mechanism that repels others but is also a source of joy and a way to cope with pain.
I’ve been listening to a lot of music since I can remember. As a child, I used to copy my favorite songs from bands such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gorillaz, Radiohead, and Coldplay onto my mp3 player. Over the years, my love for music grew – at the age of 15, I picked up the guitar and, imitating my idol, John Frusciante, began to create my own amateur mini-compositions. Strangely, it never occurred to me to go to music school, after high school I went to study engineering. I felt that this was not “it” – so I dropped out of college and devoted myself to music. After several intense years spent producing music, I collected a lot of tracks that I decided to release in some way.
‘Clown’ is a song taken from keatsu’s recent album ‘Struggles’ released on the 1st of June via the independent Polish label, Seagull Ross.
