Weeping Icon says about the track / video...
“'Like Envy' is a critique of social media’s mutation into a place where everyone can become their own brand, and the unsustainable model of one’s livelihood being staked on constantly staying relevant to a public whose attention is being fought over by, potentially, everyone on social media," says Fantry. "The video is about an influencer struggling to carve out a special place for herself in the social media marketplace. Only when she loses her connection to the curated world, is she suddenly aware of the ominous things lurking around and within us - things our generation is often too preoccupied to notice when having to concentrate on being “on” all the time."
