wordsbyjuni – “how it is”

„My new song “how it is” tells the story of my life as a teenager with overprotective parents.

“how it is” condenses my entire adolescence into a crisp 2 minutes and 33 seconds. Every single anecdote in the song, from hotboxing my bathroom to cruising online chatrooms looking for friends, is based on something embarrassingly real. 

The toughest part about being a teenager in this situation is that none of your friends really relate to what you’re going through, because they tend to have normal lives, with normal f***ing problems.

It’s only when you get to university that you realize that you’re not alone, and that there are literally thousands of kids that have had the same childhood experience. So if you’re one of those kids, this song is a testament to us and our struggles. And if not, I hope it helps you understand “how it is.”

Thanks for listening!“
