WATCH “play the part” NOW
ROLE MODEL by Aiden Cullen
Today, ROLE MODEL, born Tucker Pillsbury, is sharing a new video. “Play the part” is co-directed by Holler & ROLE MODEL himself, and offers an intimate look at Pillsbury as he questions the validity of his feelings from the backseat of his friend’s car. The track showcases ROLE MODEL’s soft vocal style, confessional lyrics and direct songwriting.
After suffering a life-threatening ski accident in 2017, Pillsbury fell into a black hole of isolation and depression that birthed his Arizona in the Summer EP. His forthcoming music is rooted in candid human emotion, offering unfiltered glimpses at the moments that define adolescents as they come of age. It’s a recounting of life through the emotions and situations that make us human, and voicing the understanding that security and comfort aren’t always easy to come by.
Speaking on the moments in his own life that he draws inspiration from, ROLE MODEL says, “I think living by myself for two years in college and dealing with depression by myself was the best thing ever to happen to me. solving my own issues in my head helped with self awareness and self love. i can lean on myself — definitely wouldn’t say I’m happy yet, but I’m getting better at trying lately.”
ROLE MODEL is living proof that while hardship in life is inevitable, honesty and patience with one’s self in those times is the only route out — that tension is eased most by confronting the emotions we’re afraid of head-on.
