Shine On highlights the pressure society puts on us to not only live but also present the perfect life. This is one of the main themes of our new record, ‘Happy, Smiling and Living the Dream’. We live in a world where it feels like everything that we do comes with a score card and is measured in a points system. If we’re not achieving these goals, we’re doing it wrong and there’s a stranger on social media doing it better. That sort of pressure brings out the worst in society and leads to skin crawling levels of falseness. It feels like things go so far that we even destroy our core selves. It’s difficult to not sound like a hypocrite as it seems all too easy to fall victim to that way of life… but I hope there’s a better way.
