Brevin Kim are slated to have an extremely successful 2019, starting off their year with the release of the official audio and visuals for “I Was Happier When I Was Sad”. The duo ended their 2018 with a long list of high-quality releases, and it’s looking as if this behavior is only going to continue as we enter the new year.
“I Was Happier When I Was Sad” is a self-explanatory name for this song, as the pair dwell on how they feel more like themselves when they’re enduring darker moments in their lives. We all eventually become molded by our surroundings, and it’s apparent that Brevin Kim have been surrounded by turmoil and distrust. They’re so used to being battle-tested that they’re unsure of how to live their lives otherwise, and it’s gotten to the point where they actually feel more comfortable when things aren’t as easy-going.
As you listen-through Brevin Kim’s collection of music, it becomes overwhelmingly apparent that these two brothers are extremely well-connected with one another. “I Was Happier When I Was Sad” is another testament towards this statement. Sonically speaking, Brevin Kim routinely find a balance that almost always results in wonderful music. As they’ve continued to develop, the lyrical content only seems to be behaving in the same fashion. It isn’t often that a musical group can achieve the type of connectivity that is present within Brevin Kim, which has been something that’s truly helped them stand-out in the Massachusetts music scene. The future is looking brighter than ever for these two brothers, and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for them.
