NYC singer-songwriter Sid Seth has shared his brand new single entitled “Hopeless War.” Speaking of the song, Sid wrote the following description:

“‘Hopeless War’ comes from a classic situation: a battle of ‘you did this, I did that.’ Both parties go crazy, and after a certain point in the argument, it doesn’t even make sense anymore. Someone takes the lead and is like, ‘Okay, let’s just end this, it’s pointless.’ It’s that scene. And after all that, it leaves you with silence and the question lingering ‘where do we go now?’

He continues: “I was playing pretty chords on a summer’s Friday night. Looking back, I was not having the most Friday night experience with what was going on in my head. It’s funny how in most situations when I’m not having the best time, I’ll try making something sound happier than it is. And then I just started singing the line, ‘Where do we go now?,’ and I really enjoyed it. I built the rest of the song except the final bridge that night. There is something very movie-like about the sound of it. I want people to hear the song and instantly immerse themselves in their own movie scene.”

He concludes: “I usually write from my own experiences and this was something that I needed to let out. I find it calming when I can write a song about what I truly feel. About something that you can’t say or can’t find a way to tell anyone. It’s not often that I write something along these lines, because I usually start overthinking it after I write it and then don’t share it. But, this felt honest to my story as an artist and was an active situation of what it was. The song is a conversation and I want the listener to enjoy the melody, beat and sonic aspect first. But, when they listen to it again (hopefully) I want them to hear the story. If you are in your teens or above you’re gonna get it.”

Sid Seth is currently working with music producer Torna (Sesame Street, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Jesse Malin, Jukebox the Ghost, A Great Big World) on more music that will be out soon. He has additionally previously worked with Kris Crawford (Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Josh Groban) and Grammy-winning mastering engineer Alex Psaroudakis.
