johan lenox – “cancel the party” short film
“I wrote this EP about my coming of age experience in suburban Massachusetts. I still go back there a ton, but things used to be more fun and less serious. As we’re all getting older I think a lot of people my age are feeling uniquely directionless. I don’t know if this is the result of personal issues or if we’ve been totally screwed over generationally, and are never really going to arrive at adulthood. That’s the feeling I wanted to capture with this project. I included Wifisfuneral, Yung Pinch, and Landon Cube on here because I thought they would relate to this sense of suburban malaise and aimlessness.” – johan lenox
‘cancel the party’ finds johan lenox drawing upon his suburban Boston upbringing. Also, the 9-track project contains emotional displacement that many listeners feel as they work through their twenties.
