CARSON FERRIS - Crazy
'Crazy' is the 3rd song released by Carson Ferris in 2023. It is about liking a girl, but being told that you are too young to be in love. Carson actually wrote the song about his relationship with his music and being told he’s too young to be a serious musician. The song features rocking syncopated bass, unusual precision sounds, and a rap in the bridge. The has a similar vibe to that of songs like Jonas Brothers’ Sucker and Kelly Clarkson’s Since You’ve Been gone.
The many layers of interesting percussive sounds were recorded live at June Audio in Provo, Utah. Crazy tells the story of someone pursuing something even though the odds are stacked against them. Ostensibly the song is about a couple that people say are too young to be together. In actuality, Carson wrote it about feeling like he’s too young to be pursuing a music career, or feeling like he’s being seen as too young to be taken seriously.
