Au/Ra shares new single ‘plz don’t waste my youth’

“I just really wanted to express how difficult it can feel for young people and society’s expectations of them and yell about it.”

Alt-pop rising star Au/Ra has shared her latest bop, ‘plz don’t waste my youth’. “‘plz don’t waste my youth’ is about how young people kinda grow-up so quickly in today’s society,” she explains. “I think seeing everyone’s highlight reel on social media has raised expectations on us. When you turn 18, you’re supposed to have figured out what you want from life, but that’s not how it works. Personally, I sometimes felt I wasn’t getting to enjoy the time I had as a teenager, because I was plagued with the worry of being successful enough and having it all figured out. It’s not always easy to cope with, especially when you’re already an anxious person. I just really wanted to express how difficult it can feel for young people and society’s expectations of them and yell about it.” Check it out now below.
