When M+P last caught up with INTRN (2019 interview here), he had five singles under his belt which formed a durable foundation. Every release since 2019’s “Headspace” has continued to prove his knack for stunning songwriting and perfecting his acoustic electro-pop sound. In the last two years, INTRN has amassed 6,000,000+ streams on Spotify and been featured on editorial playlists such as New Music Friday and idk.. His breakout collaboration, “Lose A Friend” w/ Beowülf, has helped with achieving his numbers. As he continues to stack his catalog, INTRN is growing his fan base and elevating his sound.
His brand new single, “Get To You,” has a familiar moody tone, touching upon the relatable loneliness over the last year. Spending time at home, scrolling aimlessly on your phone, and wishing for the day to see people normally again.
Spending days in bed feeling awfully lonesome
Fighting off the feeling that I’ll never find someone
Hoping that the stars align and somehow I find you
Maybe I could wait just a little longer
Socializing’s hard when you’re scared to leave home at
Some point this will end and we will both find something new
The laid back nature of the song, and simple message creates a feeling of social longing. The “not-so-sad sadboi” sends a message of comfort and hope that we will be out of our lonesome someday. And when it comes to relationships, instead of feeling anxious about not having someone right now, look forward to the day when everything opens up again and the wait is all worth it.
