Ground-breaking and game-changing, Sean Wyer’s new single ‘Videogames‘ is best described as an ear-worm that you won’t be getting out of your head for a while. One of the strongest pop tracks of June 2021, this effortless offering takes the songwriter’s music to the next level. Gaining support from the likes of CLASH, CLOUT and Music Crowns, this affectionate number tells a relatable story.
Speaking about the track, Sean explains, “Videogames is really about missing people you love. Lockdown was incredibly tough in that way. I’d fallen for a guy, but I was scared to tell him. I spent my teenage years in the closet, so I hadn’t had many chances to experience these deeply romantic feelings before. It was mid-lockdown and playing video games was a way to take my mind off how I felt. I’d get lost in the game and it made it easier to not think about things. In the end, I worked through my emotions by writing this song for him.”
Bittersweet in places but mainly optimistic for better days to come, ‘Videogames’ was written in one sitting. Sean adds, “I was sat at the piano, and it just hit me that this is what I wanted to write. It was a really emotional experience. The lyrics came out of nowhere and suddenly took away all the confusion. It was like a lightning bolt of inspiration. Later, I realised that it was the perfect song to collaborate on with Joel. He loves to experiment with lots of unique sounds in his production and he really brought the computer game aspects to life. It was a very cool collaboration. We struck this unique balance between my pretty melancholic song and Joel’s upbeat and detailed pop production.”
Cementing legendary status, this track needs to be played from every rooftop in town.
