One of my “man of my dreams”- the man that makes my heart goes boom boom boom, Garek, – the artist behind the hit song “Save The Queen“, is out with a new “I smell a new hit song” called “Goddamn Dizzy Kids“. I’m so excited ! I just love Garek’s creative style and expression and he has once again got me hooked on his music. Thank you Garek!
With “Goddamn Dizzy Kids” Garek positions himself as the new Anti-Pop Star, fighting to break the mold of cookie-cutter predictability in today’s music industry. He takes the formula so often used in today’s pop music: a bright, bouncy chorus with a catchy hook and spins it into something so quintessentially Garek- sinister, sarcastic, but still highly listenable.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Garek made his transition to New York in 2010 to pursue a career in music. He landed an internship at a music production house writing and singing demos for the likes of Disney and Nickelodeon. Quickly disenchanted with the assembly-line mentality of today’s hit makers and songwriters, Garek took what he learned and applied it to a scathing critique of today’s music culture in “Goddamn Dizzy Kids”. As a ghostwriter gone rogue, Garek steps out from behind the money-making machine and gives the middle finger to commercialised music and the corporations behind it.
“I was tired of making music for the machine. So, instead of feeding the machine, I set out to starve it. For “Goddamn Dizzy Kids”, I used the formulas I was privy to as a ghostwriter (big, bouncy choruses, bright, catchy hooks and contemptible, chantey nonsense), but used it in a way that allowed me to spread my message. I refuse to settle for the sea of mediocrity that has become the standard for this generation’s music.”
The video accompanying the song sees Garek in pursuit of a strangely familiar rodent, as well as a spoof of a not-so-anonymous Pop Star’s underwear shoot…
