[Stream + Lyrics] Radio Eliza – Kids

posted by: Arjun New Music Daily
New Radio Eliza!

Radio Eliza is a Dutch six-piece band with a sound reminiscent of that synth-driven indie pop wave of the late 2000s but with lyrics that could only exist in these unfiltered times. A lot of people consider indie pop to be “fluff” music and completely disparage it. For me, indie pop has merit when the chorus hits at the perfect moment (and suddenly teleports you into a teen drama you thought you had outgrown), and when the writer somehow conveys your own emotions in a completely unexpected way (…and suddenly teleports you into a teen drama you really, really thought you had outgrown). These elements come together on ”Kids,” Radio Eliza’s best song to date.

While I don’t particularly care for the yelling in the backing vocals and the outro, the lyrics are so bold and relatable you realize you have totally lived out the lyrics several times over in your own glory days.

If you like what you hear on “Kids,” then I highly recommend you check out the rest of Radio Eliza’s debut project, the Intergalactic Flurny Furby EP. (“Answering Machine” is another favorite of mine.)

But when she called I heard her say / ”Perfect ending, shitty day”

Hit the jump to follow along with the lyrics of “Kids.”


Radio Eliza – Kids Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Michael fucked Miranda
and now her Jake is mad
Diana is freaking out
because her grades are bad
Well, Mary and MacKenzie
are fighting after school
Skyler’s boyfriend is twice her age
Poppin’ pills is all the rage

We’re smoking weed behind the
the city swimming pool
Kimberly and Lily think
they’re oh so fucking cool
Well I’m so good the walls don’t even notice what they do
But when she called I heard her say,
“Perfect ending, shitty day”

[Hook]
We’re all walking down the streets
I hope the cops don’t see
(Come on baby, party with me, come on baby, party with me)
We’re all walking down the streets
I hope the cops don’t see
(Come on baby, party with me, come on baby, party)

[Verse 2]
We’re going out to night clubs
We’re using fake IDs
She’s kissing random boys who gave her shots of martinis
And when this party’s over there’s no way she’s gonna leave
Cause when she called I heard her say,
“Perfect ending, shitty day”

[Hook]
We’re all walking down the streets
I hope the cops don’t see
(Come on baby, party with me, come on baby, party with me)
We’re all walking down the streets
I hope the cops don’t see
(Come on baby, party with me, come on baby, party with me)

[Outro]
When the kids play everybody’s losing their minds
When the kids play they just wanna have a good time
When the kids play
When the kids play
Well everybody’s losing their mind
(Losing their mind, losing their mind, losing their mind, losing their mind)
Come on baby, party with me
Come on baby, party with me
Come on baby, party with me
Come on baby, party with me
