With his new single “The Dino Club”, Ethan Bortnick combines his platform and musicianship to shed light on the issues facing today’s generation and issues that future generations will face. The track focuses on the mistakes of the past that we as a society continue to make and pushes for humans to make smarter decisions in the future.
The piano prodigy expresses his frustration with society in the current day through a dark but upbeat melody featuring his raw piano skills. This hard-hitting, in-your-face alternative song makes a point to out humanity’s repeated mistakes, focusing primarily on the tobacco epidemic that has plagued society for years. Bortnick frames the way cigarettes were advertised for older generations and compares how the issue was disguised through a new, “safer” product for the next generation, and drives the point that both were government approved and appealed to the next coming generation. Bortnick effectively portrays the gravity of repeating humanity’s mistakes by referencing “The Dino Club”, calling on mankind to open their eyes so that the human race can survive, thrive, and avoid its demise.
