Experience the Sweet Bitterness of Existentialism in corook’s single, “idk god”
corook returns once more as she prepares for her upcoming achoo! EP with a new single titled “idk god.” She is an artist of a more rare and unique quality, stapling herself as someone who takes on personal themes in her music and visuals through a quirky and humorous lens. The Nashville-based artist introduced herself with her favored debut single “sims,” showing her knack for creating a genre-busting sound. It’s needless to say that corook is an experience that keeps moving forward, inspiring artists around the globe to be unapologetically themself.
On the day that “idk god” released, corook felt the need to say the following:
“I was supposed to release a different song today. I’m on tour right now playing the songs from my EP, and I remember being shocked by people’s reactions to this particular song during the first few shows. With everything going on in Ukraine, I think we are all questioning our connection to whoever or whatever put us here and why. This song is all of that questioning – from something as simple as why dogs don’t live forever, to why people get cancer. While it’s all really complicated, connecting to people through this song gets more and more special every night on tour. I’m excited to be able to share it with everyone else now.”
Overall, “idk god” is a beautifully composed track that deals with the existential questions that go unanswered. Questions such as ‘why do babies cry,’ ‘why do people get cancer,’ and ‘why dad is such an ass’ are some of the examples provided, and corook asks these in sweet, soft vocals that can sooth any soul. The acoustics go miles in giving the song a very homey feeling, as we all have felt the weight of the world in confusing periods of our lives.
