CloudKid Presents Paper Idol - Bright Side Baby
Bouncy, dancey, and a whole ‘lotta fun, ‘Bright Side Baby’ is the summer anthem listeners didn’t know they needed just yet. Full of intensity, passion and grooves, this next track of the artist’s upcoming ‘The Playground‘ project is all about growing into young adulthood.
Paper Idol says of this next track, “‘Bright Side Baby‘ is about feeling down and looking for another person to fill a void for you and cheer you up. It’s actually funny because most people I ask, hear the lyrics as “looking for my bright side, baby” with a comma, which is a great twist, because I didn’t write or intend it that way as you notice from the title of the song. It’s like the Disney-movie tagline, “what he was looking for was inside him” kind of thing. Each song on this album represents a different phase of childhood and Bright Side Baby is about my late-teens/early twenties, when it felt like there were hundreds paths I could take, so many versions of myself to choose from and ascribe to. There was endless opportunity and endless confusion, and it was hard; it got dark at times, and back then I was still looking for my bright side. I think I’ve found it now and I’m just working on showing it as much as possible!”
