Conan Gray is one of the freshest voices I’ve heard in a long time, and he’s about to become a household name. The YouTube star launches his debut EP tonight, but before that, you need to give a listen to “Generation Why”.
Written and directed by Gray himself, the video is a confidant, expressive, coming-of-age tale that’s compelling and honest on a real, approachable level.
Much more than that though, “Generation Why” is a stunning track that’s an absolute ear-worm. It’s slick, smart, sweetly endearing, and perfectly produced. The lyrics are nostalgic, and wonderfully honest, on top of encapsulating an absolute millennial call-to-arms.
