Resistor - "Narcissist" (video) (Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

29 April 2014

Wanna hear a musical selfie? Look no further Resistor's "Narcissist", a tune that pretty much sums up the self-absorption of our times.
 

Steve Goldberg (a.k.a. Resistor) grew up middle class in suburban New Jersey searching for meaning through art. After working with bands and slogging through clubs, Goldberg had a year where he had little money, but still possessed the urge to make music. So, with Resistor, Goldberg worked with a synth and his voice at home, updating classic new wave sounds for the new millennium. Goldberg titled his new album First World Problems in recognition that his concerns and those of many young Americans are very much those of a wealthy, first world society.
  
Today, we present the perfectly named “Narcissist”, a track from First World Problems, which will release May 30th.
