How do we combat the struggle and maintain our strength to go back out into a world that appears to be against us all the time?

Working as a bartender at the solebar in my small town, I witnessed many people coping with life’s ups and downs.

There were two people I saw meet, one much older than another, who had a one night stand that led to their lives spiralling out of control. They were having a child yet wanted nothing to do with each other.

They vented about their situation at the bar and I remember hearing one of them saying they felt like they were being cloned, which felt so clinical.

That line stuck with me and led to the writing of “Kicks,” an energetic and raw piece of alt-rock. This song asks what your personal definition of sanity, loneliness, and happiness are in our current climate. The video for “Kicks'” is a contemporary take on an old theme: the downward spiral of a heroine’s struggle in life.

It’s human nature to want to get your rocks off – gotta get your “Kicks” while you still can.
