The Ready Set has released their highly anticipated solo single, “Who You Really Are.” Following their collaborative effort on “Buttercup” with Little Hurt in 2022, this new track marks The Ready Set‘s triumphant return to their solo endeavors since 2018’s “Stitch.” Last night, vocalist Jordan Witzigreuter joined our very own Fish to chat about the new single, which you can listen to here.
While chatting with Fish, Witzigreuter shares about the new track, “It’s really chaotic sounding. I have so much new stuff…In my head, I was like, ‘This is not the first thing that you would put out responsibly, and be like, look at my new thing that everyone’s going to love.’ It may be polarizing, which I kind of wanted. The whole vibe of it feels like sort of a mix of what all of the new stuff is, it’s so many different things at once. It’s supposed to feel really chaotic, it just feels like anxiety. Which sort of sums up a lot of the thesis of this and that. But it’s hopeful, too.”
