Carnival Kid - We Used To Shout At You



We Used To Shout At You is the new single by Christian Stezycki's solo project Carnival Kid. It is full of energy and catchy song. The weird beat followed by the loud drums and the exquisite guitars, but also the expressive and clear vocals, give the song a unique character. The sound production is excellent and makes the track so impressive and so unpredictable that you never get bored. 

Lyrically, the song is about the lack of perspective in the songwriter's hometown. Christian Stezycki says about :"It's a nervous song, full of anger and desperation based on the feeling of seeing your hometown slowly die. And while my family was trying their best to make me stay or at least come back, everything else around almost violently seemed to push me away. There were no jobs, no shops, no perspective for my children and only radical or old people. And while everyone is singing about the clubs in Berlin, this is basically happening everywhere else around."


He also explains how the name of  Carnival Kid came out : "The 11th of November, eleven minutes past 11 o’clock in the morning, sees the beginning of carnival season in Germany. Many people, including myself, don’t really care about this. But  the 11th of November 2009, at 9 past 11 A.M., my son saw the light of day. Children born on this day are called “Faschingskinder” in Germany - carnival kids. And since this event changed basically every aspect of my life, including my perception, writing and interpretation of music, I felt it to be a pretty perfect name for a solo project.
Carnival also includes the idea of hiding behind a mask, which I am kind of doing in a linguistic sense when I am writing and singing in English (or when I’m writing this pseudo-international text). The kid-part of the name might give a hint to all the struggles you go through in your thirties, but I guess I better leave that to interpretation. And if this description made you laugh your ass off since it’s so cheesy, then that’s also some kind of carnival I suppose…"


The first two songs in 2020, "We Used To Shout At You" and "We Were The Shadows", have actually been written at around 2009, when his previous band Jovernanté decided to part ways and lots of great material got lost on the working bench. He recorded them again, changed them and now they are finally seeing the light of day.
