In a few words, “BLEED” is a song that condemns the conditioning capitalism has brought about which places value on productivity over everything else.
Sonically, this song reminds me of a mix between two artists specifically. Those artists are JPEGMAFIA and a touch of Earl Sweatshirt. The song is frantic, possibly to reflect the frantic nature of most capitalist mindsets. Considering that we’re in an era where we must “do something” in order to seem useful, that’s a necessary point to discuss.
Additionally, Gao switches from harmonic musings about our society to hard flows about the same topic. These two flows help round out the song and give it an added weight. I’ve included the video to “BLEED” as well, since it helps flesh out the idea a lot more (while featuring discussions on human worth in the age of capitalism).
