James Blonde Fight Their FOMO (And Yours)

The Niagara Falls trio tap into your insecurities with their bouncy new single.

James Blonde have a bad case of FOMO in their crunchy, bouncy new pop-rock single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

FOMO was an important song for us to make.” The Niagara Falls trio explain. “It fully encapsulates this popular feeling among the band members where we miss out on a lot of life from having such a different schedule to others, and sometimes feeling too drained to muster the energy to go out and do things that could otherwise be fun.”

This track starts off with a high-energy guitar riff which immediately gives off wild and frantic vibes. The band capture their emotional state of frustration in the song’s lyrics:

“Fear Of Missing Out
You don’t want to doubt
That when you go
You’ll be better off
You got the fear of missing out
Don’t know what about
How could you know
That you’d be better off on your own.”

“We wrote this song with a big and busy chorus with high-energy guitar riffs trying to match the energy of the song with the expectations we build in our minds of ‘what could be’ that we might miss out on,” the trio say in a press releas. “In contrast, we wrote a more somber and slightly chaotic crescendoing verse to match the building anxiety that comes along with the Fear Of Missing Out.”

James Blonde arrived on the music scene in their hometown of Niagara Falls on New Year’s Eve 2017, opening for Sam Roberts and Serena Ryder. Following their full length self-titled release in 2017, the single Heartbreak was picked up by major playlists and Starbucks, who added the song to its in-store radio across the globe.
