“We wrote ‘123’ about looking back at times that seem simpler and realizing that things you want in life sometimes come at a cost. A storybook ending can’t come for free.”
Los Angeles’ Good Rzn release “123”, an alternative and psychedelic pop mix that brings the listener to a place of self-reflection and self-improvement. Duo Josie Molasky and Tommy Ghirardini bring soft vocal melodies and a simple guitar to this latest song. “123” begins with a heavily stylized electric guitar fingerpicking and some number wordplay that brings you to the song’s message in the chorus. While looking for something more, we realize nothing comes easy or second nature as the lyrics “It’s not easy / Like 1,2,3” suggest.
The bridge explores intrusive thoughts, the “what ifs” that lead us back to the final chorus. It is realized then that overthinking is so easy and comes naturally as we get older and dream bigger. “The end of the song culminates in the storyteller realizing that things can be simple again it just takes time to figure things out,” says Good Rzn.
“123” is Good Rzn’s third track on their debut EP Falling In Slow Motion out today.
