Toronto based artist, HotKid, just released their new single "Push Us Out". From the first 30 seconds in, you can tell this is an Indie hit.
HotKid is a music project lead by artist/producer Shiloh Harrison who gave us a run down of the track. “The chorus is kind of an anthem to those trying to hold the line in the face of unfathomable cost of living increases. Whereas the verses speak to finding beauty in the last moments of a beloved apartment or finding peace in the idea that our accommodations don’t ultimately define us.” Harrison adds “Push Us Out was largely written a few years back about facing eviction when you’re 7 months pregnant, but it just never got finished. During the recent lockdown I sent the band some tracks to play on and I think the finished version is just as well suited to the challenge of again finding affordable housing during a global pandemic.”
The track does an awesome job and blending different elements under the Indie and Alternative umbrella. Deep lyrics paired over emotional sounding, guitar driven, instrumentals take you on quite a journey as the song bridges between eerie verses and catchy choruses. We liked this track so much we also added it to our Underground Indie & Alternative Spotify playlist. This was our first time listening to HotKid, but "Push Us Out" has guaranteed that it won't be the last.
