CloudKid Presents Paper Idol - Young Hearts
On his last track with CloudKid before his second EP drop, Paper Idol drops ‘Young Hearts,‘ a track he says will take listeners on a middle school love affair. Fun and bouncy with indie-pop and late 90s rock sensibilities, the track focuses on one’s first middle-school crush and the emotional rollercoaster that those first feelings take one’s younger self through.
He says, “I wrote the song about that first middle-school crush. There’s something so innocent and pure about that moment, that person, the time in your life where it’s the first sense of intense emotionality you experience while growing up and into adolescence. You know, even though it’s doomed to fail, it feels like the most important thing in the world at that time. As you age, love and relationships become more complicated. The song is about yearning that pure, simple crush experience again. It’s sweet, wholesome, nostalgic and this is a fun song to jam to while remembering that!”
»It's doomed to fail, but it's the most important thing.«
