shy kids – “i love everything”


Sounding like a breath of fresh, optimistic air, “i love everything” is an upbeat pop success from shy kids. The Toronto-based project meshes twinkling, toppling synths with sugary vocals and lyrics touching on various delights — from plants and cappuccinos to Korean food. “I love everything,” the vocals regale prior to the hook, with a bit of harp involvement. Twinkling keys and whimsical vocal effects surround around 01:30, a hooky mid-point traversing nicely into the familiarly upbeat verses thereafter. In such particularly hard times, the track delights with a look at some of life’s lovelier elements, from family and friends to delicious food.

The act elaborate on the track below:

“Over the past year, it’s been easy to focus on what we’re missing out on. This song is about appreciating and loving everything in front of us despite the difficult times. From the small things to the big things. Parents, plants, and cappuccinos. Cats, dogs, and Korean food. It’s about loving everything. Thanks for listening.”

“i love everything” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of March 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
