Hot off the heels of his second EP 'feelings', singer / songwriter clide draws the year to a close with a dose of vulnerability in new single 'kitchen floor'.
Words: Lauren Stewart
Both catchy and relatable 'kitchen floor' is lyrically inspired by the emotional consequences of a drunken fight and what can happen when a little bit too much of the truth has been spilled. A gorgeous fusion of warm R&B, soft indie and cool electronica, the track is both uptempo and easy listening with rich beats and a powerful drive paired with engaging and passionate vocals from clide. He shows off his versatility and vulnerability with heart-on-sleeve lyricism and a sound that hints towards a slightly more punk and emo influence. 'kitchen floor' makes the perfect breakup song or simply, a track you can’t help but vibe to.
'kitchen floor' ends the year on a high note and its message hitting right before holiday imbibing proves timely for those struggling in romantic or family relationships.
The track is positioned to help top clide's current YouTube success with over 3 million views worldwide. But his successes don’t just come from YouTube; clide’s debut EP 'In My Mind' has reached nearly 35M streams since its release in 2020. His former focus single 'broken parts’ still grows to this day in the US with over 50k search inquiries via popular platform Shazam. And now being German-based, clide has been nominated for the New Music Award by Germany’s biggest radio stations.
