Cj Pandit recognizes that he’s similar to everyone else figuring life out. A deep appreciator of human connection, Pandit crafts indie pop tunes that’ll have you crawling back for more. The rising newcomer just dropped his second single, “Digital Love,” so we suggest you add him to your playlists before his career explodes.
On “Digital Love,” Cj Pandit reflected,
“However far technology and the world progresses, we’ll still have a deep desire to be cheek to cheek with someone we love and be able to reach out and touch them. I love and hate the digital world we all now inhabit, but wouldn’t change it for anything.”
Although Pandit has a love-hate relationship with the digital world, he acknowledges the plentiful benefits that come with our unhealthy obsession with technology in “Digital Love.” Showered with playful guitars and synths, “Digital Love” has Pandit appreciating the ease of communicating with people across the world through our various devices. The “Digital Love” video, which is directed and edited by Pandit and Vzavz, is a stop-motion masterpiece fully dedicated to Internet culture.
“No matter how cold it can feel at times, there’s always something so simply human at the root of any communication. And if I can see the person I love’s face on the other side of the world in real time at the end of my arm then I think that’s pretty fucking beautiful. Of course it’s got its downfalls, the world being smaller than ever can push us to feel lonelier than ever, but it’s such an amazing tool.”
