Following the release of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?’ last year, Billie Eilish isn’t showing any signs of slowing down with a steady trickling of new singles starting to flow. ‘My Future’ was the dreamy markings of new beginnings, while the definitive new single ‘Therefore I Am’ is a smash hit waiting to happen.
Written as a clap back commentary on people trying to use her for clout, she makes sure she underlines the fact that they are actually not friends and that she doesn’t want anything to do with them. It’s savage in the best kind of way, and the best type of self-love anthem that we need in our lives right now. “I’m not your friend or anything, damn. You think that you’re the man, I think therefore I am” she confidently sings.
The production is on a dark and grungy pop wave-length that cites influence from her previous singles ‘Bad Guy’ and ‘Bury A Friend’ that had similar aesthetics. It’s definitely her most captivating single as of recent, and is the most commercially inclined. It’s one that you’ll want to add to your heavy rotation playlists immediately, and stomp around singing the lyrics while thinking about all the people you don’t want in your life.
