Robert Robert adresses the loss of meaning in “The Person Who Knows”

Robert Robert‘s new EP “How To Save Water” is due out October 26 on Nowadays Records.

Montreal’s producer Robert Robert is readying the release of his new 5-track EP, set to be a coming of age sound journey. One year after “Welcome To Finetown” EP, the artist has observed and learned about his entourage, tried to look for answers and his thoughts are now translated into lyrics and vocal performances, as heard in the first mystical offering “Nobody Breaches Our Stasis“. Robert Robert who is known for his melancholic mist and deep bass has now enriched his music equation with a dose of self-reflection and wisdom.

One of his new songs, “The Person Who Knows”, focuses on how people deal with loss of meaning and anxiety in our increasingly connected world. Ahead of the release of his EP, Robert Robert is premiering today an intriguing live visual performance for the track as well as an accompanying statement:

The song is about people I know who are all looking for meaning in their lives and their reasons for being. And the way we escape behind our screens to appease anxiety. It speaks of feeling empty and looking at the future like a wall. The video represents the insensitivity that beats to stay away from everything that happens in the world, the comfort of escape. Ignorance is bliss.
