KID DAD wrote a total of 41 songs after releasing their debut record “In a Box” in August 2020. There was just so much that wanted to get out, that had to get out. A lot had to be tried and tested.
And so the band just let it happen without thinking about what they are supposed to sound like. “Boat” was the first out of these songs and became the fourth song on their EP “Bloom”- set for release in December.
It’s a song that - on “In a Box” would have felt foreign. Guitars flow calmly, almost hypnotic without a need for the spotlight. Momentum is gained gradually, in tiny steps, taking on every increase in energy organically. “Boat” puts a vacuum to sound - within it everything seems possible and feels meditative.
The lyrics put us in a sort of post-apocalyptic scenario. It’s calm, a giant aircraft carrier is floating through a peaceful ocean with no one on it apart from the lyrical self. An idea that is frightening and romantic at the same time: “"I'm not fearful / I am nothing / anything but me / but I'm free" sings Marius Vieth.
