Sometimes I do…and sometimes other people do, too! Be anxious or nervous is normal, right? Last year at a conference, my friend was giving a short talk. She was nervous, for obvious reasons, so I played her this (I recommend that you stick with the whole song. It’s rather dynamic and ends somewhere COMPLETELY different than it starts):
I love that this video has the lyrics, too. It’s even more effective! Who doesn’t have days or situations where there “hips don’t dip” or their “mix don’t match?!” I think we all do. Or when you’re “on your own two feet but you’re not standing upright?”
Like I said above, let this song guide you from start to finish. Sisyphus is a trio composed of the rapper, Serengeti, Ryan Lott of Son Lux and Sufjan Stevens. Quite the triangle of talent I’d say AND they really capitalize on their versatility as musicians in their full length, self-titled album that was released in 2014.
“Calm It Down” is the perfect example of the journey a lot of the songs on this album lead you on. Choppy beats complimented by Serengeti that bleed flawlessly into Sufjan Stevens’ calming section, buttered with smooth, electronic sounds.
