The Los Angeles-based musician’s new EP is catchy but sappy.
ROLE MODEL is the perfect “sad boi.” Completely embodying the Tik-Tok persona in musical form, ROLE MODEL spends much of his new EP, oh, how perfect, discussing heartbreak and loneliness. But whether or not you’re here for a good cry ROLE MODEL’s music is engaging. Previously, he’s impressed on “Minimal” and again here with the standout jam “that’s just how it goes.” The track finds him in a failing relationship and, as the title suggests, he’s able to reluctantly accept his fate, delivering one of the more uplifting moments on the project during the song’s chorus. You can find “that’s just how it goes” from ROLE MODEL on our Tasty! Jams playlists.
