Origins of ‘Folly’ 6 February 2017
I want to preface this with how strongly I believe in a separation between art and artist. Once it’s created, I think art should be open to interpretation, and I believe that not even the artist has the power to assign objective meaning to something they created once it exists in the world. With that said, 'Folly' is meant to personify the way in which we derive our self-worth from everything but one’s self. It’s an acknowledgment of the toxic nature by which we try to minimize anxiety; it’s a desperate attempt at finding some sort of solace in coming to terms with things that have long been ignored.
Personally, the lyrics and content for the record...
