Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Colby Lafayette is the latest artist on our radar that’s spoiling us with anti-pop fit for the gods. Having moved to sunny Los Angeles after high school, Lafayette has been searching for his musical voice since then. For those of you who are seeking something a bit more experimental and genre-bending, Lafayette is delivering his teeth-clenching new single, “SO BAD SO WHAT.”
Taken from his forthcoming EP, SO BAD, “SO BAD SO WHAT” incorporates stirring beats alongside Lafayette’s raspy vocals. Apathy may not be an attractive look on all of us, but Lafayette manages to twist this passivity into something so immaculate. To put it simply, “SO BAD SO WHAT” is basically a lo-fi banger you’ll want to add to your playlists immediately.
On “SO BAD SO WHAT,” Colby Lafayette shared,
“I was young and acting out. I’m behaving so bad, this is so bad for me, I feel so bad and the attitude of so what came with it. I didn’t care about my actions, I figured no one would want to see me doing good anyways.”
