Why do we like this?

KIDSNOT$AINTS debut “Daydreamer” is the coming of age crush we had in middle school, consuming our every thought. Shuffling through the halls of childhood, KIDSNOT$AINTS reminisces on the adolescent practice of admiring from afar. The New Jersey based collective said, “We’ve all had those moments when we were young where your crush wouldn’t leave your mind.”

Spinning in the circles of overthinking and wrestling with the strong grip of overanalysis, “Daydreamer” is the first-person narrative told from briefly infatuated eyes. Intimate yet disassociated, the vocals feel partitioned between loving and letting go. KIDSNOT$AINTS explains, “The role of the vocals was meant to symbolize the passion of a romance but the withdrawal of a lover slowly fading away.”

From a distance, “Daydreamer” looks like a casual heart sparkle, but listen deeper and you’ll see that these bright melodic gestures become an inamorata, a full-blown love for the summer-infused pop song.
