Carnival Kid - We Were The Shadows



We Were The Shadows is the new single by Christian Stezycki's solo project Carnival Kid. It's a tender indie rock song about friendship and youth dreams. The catchy and memorable chorus combined with beautiful guitar melodies and strong rhythm section, make this track one of my recent favourites.

Christian Stezycki says about it: "We Were The Shadows is a burning love letter to my childhood in an East German small town - where we felt like the heroes from all the songs and films that made us dream of brighter places than the one we grew up in. And while we were running from responsibility and discipline we knew that the moment would come when we had to realize that our heroic dreams would end some day. The song is a reminder that even in the darkest of places there's room for fantastic adventures and that under these circumstances even stronger bonds between friends can be created."


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.
