youbet, the Brooklyn band led by songwriter Nick Llobet is sharing its newest release ‘Carsick’. The song is filled with nostalgia, commanding attention through lyrical intimacy and stunning instrumental arrangements. Driven by equal parts humour and melancholy, youbet finds delight in disorder, leaning into the completely unexpected with the aim of pure freedom.
‘Carsick’ confesses a tendency to overdo things, all with a charming frankness. Yearning for the sweetness of self-control yet unable to stop the car, Nick pushes forward into the ills of excess. Their clever self-deprecation takes the edge off as they admit to indulgent and, at times, self-destructive patterns. Not without nuance, they wonder if there’s ever an end in sight while acknowledging how immoderation feeds their own self-assurance. Llobet grounds these themes in faded memories of a past road trip with a lover as they come to grips with being a better partner, shaking off frenzy, and finding restraint.
