Hurst debut latest single ‘Rattle Kids’
Sydney-based indie rock band HURST have dropped latest single ‘Rattle Kids’, the second single to come off their upcoming (and as yet, untitled) second EP.
Sharing stages with likes of bands like Kingswood and Fuel, the group have been making and bigger waves the last few months, including scoring airplay on stations Triple M and Triple J.
‘Rattle Kids’ is a track that hearkens back to Nineties alt-rock. With loud choruses exacerbating a youthful defiance and a love letter to the golden years of grunge, it’s hard not to be swept up by the rolling, distorted instrumentation.
Frontwoman Anna Veira also dances along the track with a catchy, vocal cynicism that pairs with the tone of the track nicely – expertly driving the distinct Nineties feel.
“’Rattle Kids’ is a loud revel in abandoning that adult in your head that tells you to grow up, stay mundane and exist without really living,” said Anna, when speaking of the song’s origins.
“We grew up in suburbia. Western Sydney had nothing to offer us as kids, so rather than just exist and wait until we were old enough to move away to exciting places, we spent our adolescence getting up to no good wherever we could. This pays homage to our youth that doesn’t end as the years go.”
‘Rattle Kids’ is available to stream and download now.
