Karma Kids’ track-by-track guide to “vibes. [part 2]”
With their brand-new album officially out, we caught up with Karma Kids to take us behind the lyrics of each song of the record.
Give it a spin and have a read about the inspiration behind each song.
1. How I Met Your Mother
ONE, TWO, LET’S GO! This song starts the record off with a poppy catchy bang that goes from pop punk to samples and hip hop melodies in a matter of 20 seconds or so. It reflects on being a fuck up and trying to pull out of it.
Favorite line: “You could never stand another night alone”
“Falling” was the lead single of the second half of vibes. It is about the ever too common problem of really trying to get your shit together and continuing to fall flat on your face.
Favorite line: “I’m empty/it’s not your fault I’m falling/and I can’t breathe”
“Broken Hearts Club” is a tale of a repetitive, destructive habit. Just making the same mistakes again and dwindling over it.
Favorite line: “The secrets that you keep/are buried in the sheets/I’m dying in this cold sunlight/my knees are growing weak”
This is a slow, vibey track that admits one’s own belief of being unable to be happy.
Favorite line: “I’m so spent and I’m so broken”
Favorite line: “Wasted in the Target bathroom/and now you’re making a scene”
Favorite line: “She’s such a fuckin mess I swear/lip gloss, ripped jeans and auburn hair”
Favorite line: “I’m off my medication/white pills and motivation”
“When you said I was losing my substance/I found a shortcut”
Favorite line: “When I’m gone/who the fuck’s gonna love you”
