Toronto-based singer, songwriter and producer sunsetto has released his bittersweet new single, “drugs are for fun” today. Produced by Danes Blood (Rico Nasty, Leyla Blue) and BEN10K (G-Eazy, DaBaby), and written by sunsetto is a dreamy track that finds him reflecting on unhealthy coping mechanisms, with the uptempo synth contrasting perfectly with the more emotional lyrical content.
sunsetto (aka Kyle Mischiek) elaborates on the new single, saying, “I wrote the song in LA last November about coping mechanisms that formed from seemingly harmless fun with partying but that led to some important conversations and changes in my life. The song is disguised as an upbeat catchy pop anthem but, at its core, is a sobering conversation between two people. Nobody is perfect, and we’re not all lucky enough to have someone in our life that cares enough to tell us we need to make a change.”
The accompanying video was shot in Nova Scotia, Canada. With his beautiful childhood landscape as a backdrop, sunsetto uses his own reflection to find comfort.
