Premiere: Fall in Love "Like In The Movies" With Vlad Holiday
If you’ve ever dreamt of a whirlwind romance, cinema-style (sans all the imperfections of reality), you’re not alone—Vlad Holiday is right there with you. But it’s not what you think; “Like In The Movies” isn’t about having some sort of peak-of-perfectionism love, but the opposite—in his own words, “it’s about wanting something real.” Holiday isn’t interested in a contrived romance, but a real one, and it goes without saying that most listeners would agree with his sentiment, especially in the era of social media where everyone is seemingly consumed in a never-ending Instagram story cycle. Holiday wants to slow down, and we couldn’t agree more.
“It’s about wanting something real. Everyone’s so engulfed in movies, shows, social media…myself included. There’s a bit of danger there when you’re constantly taking in all of this cookie-cutter information and seeing the world this way. Even though you know most of it is premeditated and fake to some extent, I feel like my brain can’t tell the difference anymore. You kind of lose your sense of reality a bit—the lines get blurry.”
Though “Like In The Movies” is turning traditional fairytale romance on its head, at the end of the day, it’s still a love song at heart.
“It’s actually a love song, even with the first line being ‘I won’t love you forever’,” he explains. “It’s my way of saying and accepting that the odds aren’t in our favor for this to end well—but that’s okay. Let’s have a good time.”
Listen to “Like In The Movies” below, get realistic about your love life, then get out there and fall head over heels in love, fam. You deserve it.
