Massachusetts' Pareto makes his first appearance across the airwaves of Mass Music Radio today following the release of "Fight The Feeling". Resting as the third single to be released off of his upcoming project titled Generation of Desolation, this offering lays the groundwork for a body of work that will ultimately revolve around persistence through life's turmoils.
"Fight The Feeling" is extremely reminiscent of a journal entry, in a sense that Pareto utilizes the song's three minutes of length to reflect on the trajectory of his life. Enduring a great deal of mental anguish from the expectations placed upon him, the pressure that Pareto feels on a day-to-day basis to make the right decisions about his life is something that is beginning to take its toll. As this sentiment begins to grow to a point where it feels insurmountable, Pareto stresses the importance of reaching out for help. None of us are perfect, and all of us can truly benefit from the help from our loved ones, and before it's too late - Pareto wants his audience to understand this.
Taking influences from Hip-Hop, Lo-Fi, and Alternative Pop, the music that Pareto crafts sounds incredible while still incorporating depthful themes. The message that he wants to relay to his listeners is one that of a vast level of importance, and I'm thrilled to see that Pareto is using his artistry to inspire a positive change in the lives of others.
