Michael Sneed
Sometimes Blue

Michael Sneed isn’t a new face to Fash, we’ve been hip since “Hopscotch” dropped back in 2019, and he’s been getting better and better ever since. Now in 2022, Sneed addresses the internal back-and-forth around our own expectations, releasing his new single, “Sometimes Blue”, accompanied with a short visual for social media. Collaborating with fellow Bay Area local GrandBankss, Sneed breaks down the ever-present gap between his dreams and reality. You see the struggle between being hopeful and accepting what is as Sneed cites his own experiences with disappointment; Sneed goes on to say that his lack of hope sharpens his wisdom as he says, “maybe I’m wiser when I’m hopeless.”

In a vocal style reminiscent of Midwest and Chicago hip-hop from the mid-2010s, Sneed has managed to create a track expertly balancing joyful and melancholic themes. Including group backing vocals, synths, and live drums, both Michael and Grandbankss give the listener a colorful and uplifting backdrop to Sneed’s vulnerable lyrics. In short, this song will make you both happy and sad, all at once.
