Hope in humanity is restored in this alt. pop-rocker’s ‘GTA’-inspired single

July 27, 2018

Partially inspired by the wild west that was GTA, The Skins alum, BAYLi is taking on the media’s obsession with violence and the system that spoon feeds us violence and vitriol. Not only that, but violence seems to have become part of our everyday lives in the news and in our schools. Countering the intensity of this imagery with a surprisingly comforting melody, BAYLi juxtaposes lyrical intention with hopefulness. “It’s starting to feel like life is a really bad video game,” BAYLi explains about the inescapable barbarity of modern everyday life. “I think we need to try and disconnect as much as possible from this constant violent imagery because it’s desensitizing us to the loss of human life.”
