“Overthinking” is an alternative pop masterpiece with dense beats, swirling synth leads, and hypnotic bass. The track features slick production and a stunning, beautifully haunting, dreamy, and emotive vocal performance that gives listeners a glimpse into Rob’s mental storms. To a larger extent, “Overthinking” is a song about breaking free of the mental prison we sometimes get ourselves caught up in, criticizing, overthinking, and creating excessive fears. It is a song about standing up against anxiety and depression, following your gut, and letting go of your mind’s control.
“Overthinking” exemplifies Rob’s growth and enlightenment, evoking a profound sense of introspection and determination. With his openly vulnerable and honest lyrics, he hopes that listeners battling similar mental demons might be able to find solace and heal from their own emotional anguish.
The big sawtooth-style synth leads and the bass in particular soar through the instruments beautifully, establishing themselves as the leading components in the mix without overpowering the rest of the song. At the same time, the instrumental is also very balanced, showcasing some incredibly dynamic parts and a melodic backdrop that really adds more ambiance and personality to this overall track.
Rob’s beautifully haunting voice with a unique falsetto range is reminiscent of The Weeknd’s, and his vivid words reverberate with authenticity and vulnerability. This song serves as a cathartic experience, with each verse allowing the artist to peel back layers of anxiety and depression and transcend the mundane, offering a glimpse of a man who is ready to embrace the essence of his being.
This track was written at a time when Rob wasn’t doing well mentally, and this was his way of transforming those emotions into music. He admits that he is okay now and wishes that this music helps others going through similar mental and emotional scars.
It is so generous of him to have the strength to be able to translate his pain into music that is touching and delicate like this.
“Overthinking” will officially debut on all streaming platforms on August 7, 2023. For now, you can pre-save the song by following the attached link.
