With their brand new EP ‘Garden’ landing on 27th November, London duo Exit Kid are sharing thunderous new track ‘Working Stiff’.
“I wrote ‘Working Stiff’ a few years ago and it has always been one of our favourite songs to play live”, details frontman Emre Türkmen. “The song is about the grind of touring and the detachment that comes with it. Trying to reconnect with people after a long stretch away is always difficult.
Like a lot of the earlier songs, it was written in a hotel room in USA. The lyric ‘I try to find a melody that fits the frame, that holds the key’ was about struggling to find the melody and words for this song. I was on the phone to my girlfriend, telling her how uninspired I felt and after hanging up, just sang that line. She (now my wife) still thinks it’s funny. I think it’s meta.”
