SONG PICK: Family of Things – YKB
“YKB”, the new single by Canadian indie-pop duo Family of Things sends a heavy dose of brightness and optimism into the world that makes you look at things with newfound confidence. “YKB” swirls and swings and takes cues from different styles and genres and puts them all exquisitely together. The result is a cheerful track with an underlying important message.
Music partners Aaron Brown and Bradley Barnham say the following about the track:
“We wrote this song in the midst of a cultural revolution and major pandemic. Our goal was to nod to past generations with hints of disco, soul, and funk that have made a mark on our music and of all music today.”
They explain further:
“The central lyric of this song, you know me better, refers to our global society. It has collectively adopted a series of substances and hateful thought processes in a jarring way, which overrides our healthy instincts to be loving, honest and open to everyone, everything, and ourselves.”
