Listen// Summer loving from Kyd the band

Indie-poprock outfit drops debut single.

We’ve all been there: falling in love, quickly and illogically passionately, to the point that you want to surrender all of your own financial security just to show your affections to your love interest. Kyd the band certainly has, which is why the outfit’s debut single American Dreamer explores just that feeling.

Set against triumphantly reverberated guitars and shimmering synth stabs, the track is a strong slice of sunkissed indie-pop perfectly suited for the long Summer weekends. The hopeful instrumentation, combined with the immortal love and compassion that oozes from each smoothly-delivered syllable.

Sadly, the song’s origins don’t quite reflect the lovestruck lyrical nature. The duo has said of the track’s inspiration, “When we were 15 or 16 respectively, we watched our parents lose everything from our house to our car to our furniture. We actually remember a bank rep walk up to our front door and tape a foreclosure notice on it. This instance inspired the line, ‘I think I wanna buy you a house, and if the bank man comes to steal it away, I hope you stay.’

Cheery.
