rouri404 has just released a huge new emo-esque banger.

The latest offering from the hyperpop artist and rapper goes by the name shotgun carousel, and as he says himself, it was “one of those few songs I was able to fully put myself into, letting all outside noise and problems of reality go away for a moment. All the pieces fell together very quickly, and it was super therapeutic just being able to get in a flow state of mind with all of my closest friends and collaborators.”

rouri404 adds of what it’s actually about: “The lyrics are very much just a venting of anything and everything I had been feeling at the moment, whether feelings of hopelessness and life being wasted, or just the loss of somebody you love, through heartbreak or death.

“I have also always taken inspiration from the SAW franchise,” he continues, “trying to replicate that same feeling of dread from the first films into music somehow. So I took the name shotgun carousel from there, using the scenes with that trap as a kind of ‘vibe setter’ for the lyrics and overall sound.”
