TOTEM – Comfortable

“I know that happy is a long drive with no radio. I need that one in a million whose gonna be keeping on my side wherever we go.”

NYC based artist, TOTEM, is at it again! With the upcoming release of his sophomore EP, Echoes, he’s already impressed us with previous releases “All Falls Down” and “Unrequited.” His latest release comes in the form of “Comfortable,” a track that has a strong personal meaning to the artist.

On the track, TOTEM says “there’s always been a pressure to settle down or just plain settle. It goes for relationships, careers, what restaurant you go to, really most things in life. I’ve seen a lot of people do it: go deeper and deeper into something that’s safe and ‘fine, I guess’ and soul-crushingly boring.” He continues, “Everybody wants to find ‘the one’ at some point, but how can you do that if you’re scared to go out and find it? Or try and fail?

“Comfortable is about a relationship that’s in dire need of a spark, but the sentiment behind it is about how that can be true in most facets of our lives. And we should never let it be.” Some heavy stuff from TOTEM. Be sure to be on the look out for his sophomore EP Echoes out October 9th.
