In The Rocket Summer’s latest track, “Don’t Be Yourself,” Bryce Avary delivered an uplifting acoustic rock anthem to uniqueness. His inimitable talent to create songs that touch people to the core is vivid here. The song is a perfect mix of gentle acoustic guitar riffs that grow into a powerful melody, complemented by a cello and mandolin. The words, “For what good are your dreams if they stay within your sleep?”, are a powerful message of the need to be ourselves and bring our dreams to life.

I absolutely adore how this song encourages us to live authentically and dismiss the shadows of others’ expectations. It’s a beautiful, musical reminder to be the most genuine version of ourselves.
