Sydney producer Bajillionaire today releases his first single of 2020 (premiered yesterday via Pilerats), and with it unveils a change in direction and a new raw honesty in his music. In ‘I Feel So Alone In This Club RN’ Bajillionaire lays bare his own social anxiety in a frank, truthful and sometimes very funny way.
“This song is just me being very honest about my anxieties,” explains Bajillionaire, aka 21-year-old CharlieHold. “I don’t really like clubs, I don’t really like the idea of clubbing, and going out just makes me wish I had a vice of some sort. I hope you like it. It really is just me on a page (or in a song). Honest, dumb and slightly inappropriate.”
With lyrics like, “This club is way too loud, And I just want to sleep,” Bajillionaire describes a very relatable night out that can be a worst nightmare situation for anyone who experiences social anxiety. The stripped back and acoustic feel of ‘I Feel So Alone In This Club RN’ also signals a change in style from Bajillionaire’s previous releases including ‘Empty’ and ‘Sleepwalking’.
“Sonically, I wrote this song initially assuming it would just never come out, but as time passed and I realised: “I want to sing and perform and keep making songs like this”, it became almost this little joke that I was only going to make this kind of music going forward, that slowly became more and more serious, until it informed the sound of everything else coming.
With over 1.8 million streams across his catalogue, Bajillionaire has hit the Spotify Viral charts and garnered rave reviews from triple j Unearthed tastemakers, all by the tender age of 21. A multi-talented producer, songwriter and vocalist, Bajillionaire has also been a saxophone player since childhood, allowing him to gain a strong grasp on music theory early on and helping him find his feet in the production scene.
