The powerful lead single from Liquid Modern’s upcoming debut full-length is an energetic, upbeat 80s inspired synth-pop song.
Musically, it is reminiscent of 80s Cyndi Lauper-style synth-pop blended with modern pop elements. It begins with a catchy synth lead and simple upbeat guitar as it builds to twinkling arpeggiated synths, a big grooving synth bassline and a driving beat accentuated by a syncopated wood block.
Singer Kojette's lyrical content and melodic capabilities come across beautifully in a slightly distorted urgency through dynamic changes as the catchy-nature of the carefully-crafted hook. Blending pop sounds with indie/punk production elements fits the powerful message of the song.
Lyrically, the song asks its listener to actively stand up for themselves and affect change in their own lives rather than blindly accept the status quo.
This record is the result of several years of reflection, writing, producing, re-writing, re-producing, and now finally sharing it with you. There are so many people to thank and stories to get into that we'll definitely share over the coming days, but for now, thank you for listening. And thank you to everyone involved with this album.
