"Blackout At The Kindergarten" is a big song about the small and big things about growing up- by Carnival Kid

Oh, sweet jesus, how I love the heavy sound of Carnival Kid's big indie rock track "Blackout At The Kindergarten" that kind of swings for the fences. On one hand it feel anthemic but on the other the heaviness can push deep inside you and feel intimate. Later in the song after all the tumultuous indie rock fury, the palm muted electric guitar transforms into a seriously beautiful bit of acoustic music and the vocal melody repeats the loveliness of one phrase over and over again. It is the kind of surprise ending that elicits goosebumps in the wee early hours of the morning and maybe even a tear.

Carnival Kid is the indie /alternative solo project of Christian Stezycki out of Germany and "Blackout At The Kindergarten" (streaming on Spotify) is his second single as a solo artist. Of the song he shares:

"This is my second single as a solo artist and it deals with all the stuff you go through becoming an adult/father/responsible person. It's trying to capture the feeling of being overworked while hoping for the ones you love to help you out in some kind of way while knowing that they have pretty much the same problems getting along."

Oh, and one more thing. Play this song loud.
