Artist: Vikesh Kapoor
Song: "Bottom Of The Ladder"
Album: The Ballad Of Willy Robbins 

"'Bottom Of The Ladder' is inspired by the frustration of being stuck in limbo – climbing some ladder, sticking to some societal framework, and doing so seemingly forever and without progress," Vikesh Kapoor tells Rolling Stone. "My debut album follows a narrative and within that context this opening song shows the speaker struggling to come to terms with expectation versus self-fulfillment. Discouraged with making ends meet for his family, he dreams of jumping off that ladder and abandoning the life he's been expected to live."
