Description of song:
Detention is a song about viewing our mishaps as opportunities for growth, rather than seeing these situations as unforgivable failures. This song is sung from the perspective of a teacher using this brief moment to sit down with the student and encourage them to see outside of themselves. The teacher is not punishing or demonizing the student for their stumble. But rather, showing the pupil that everyone makes mistakes and by learning from these experiences, we can become the best version of ourselves and make the world a better place. Soon, the student will become the teacher and the younger generation will be behind the wheel. Hopefully these lessons learned through real life experiences will guide our flawed past towards a perfect tomorrow.
Style and influences:
In an attempt to give the world a fun song that’s both unique and unpredictable, Detention has no hook, a driving percussive pulse and is intertwined inside an 8-Bit soundscape. Detention is not structured in a typical verse chorus verse chorus arrangement, but rather resembles a triangular construction which still fulfils the listener's desire for closure. It’s a short song with fast paced lyrics full of one liners and deep philosophical questions about the human experience.
