If you’re longing for some kind of human interaction aside from TikTok and Omegle, FULLMETALPARKA$’ This Hit Different OST should be able to simulate a dialog with the emotions of lust and love you might be feeling on your end. His nostalgia for anime and video games from the ’90s to early 2000s are ever-present in his artwork and self-produced songs. It also influences the titling of his projects since all he would listen to when he was younger was anime OSTs.
“On the This Hit Different cover the girl is from a 2004 anime titled School Rumble,” he told The FADER. He continued, “She was the rich girl who had everything and yet felt alone, so this project was designed mostly for the woman that I felt was out of reach but if given the opportunity to speak to said woman, these tracks would be the tones to show my nature and personality.”
