“Be Like You” is a compelling indie-rock pop track that delves deep into the intricate web of expectations we navigate in the digital age, particularly under the pervasive influence of social media. The Ivy skillfully weaves a narrative that resonates with the complexities of modern life, using a vibrant sonic palette to bring the theme to life.
The song kicks off with a pulsating beat as guitars riffs and drums beats quickly blend in, immediately drawing the listener into its dynamic soundscape. The lyrics, poetic and introspective, serve as a poignant commentary on the pressure to conform to societal norms and the curated versions of ourselves presented on social media platforms.
The exploration of these themes is masterfully reflected in the vocal delivery, oscillating between raw vulnerability and anthemic exuberance. The lead singer’s voice becomes a conduit for the emotional turbulence that accompanies the constant comparison fostered by the digital realm. The chorus, in particular, acts as a powerful rallying cry against the suffocating weight of comparing oneself to others. The angsty track reminds us to tear down our walls and live authentically.
