Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Billie Eilish is a massive part of the contemporary music scene, if she’s not putting out attitude-driven earworms herself, she’s inspiring other artists and making them realise that it’s okay to play around with the darker side of aural experimentalism.
One artist using Billie Eilish as an influence in their Witch Trance EDM soundscapes is the up and coming German artist FUREA. Their latest single “This Can’t Be Happening” is the perfect introduction to their fiery and melodic yet volatile approach to sound.
Even with the wavy transcendental Trap House vocals the sentiment behind This Can’t Be Happening will hit you like a brick. The single perfectly encapsulates the anxiety which many generations have already grown up in. Our culture breeds fear, but thankfully, it also breeds artists such as FUREA who make the existential dread a little more tolerable.
