Album Review: ‘Tired All the Time’

Tired All the Time, the debut album from Canada-based duo K.I.D, was released on April 18, 2018, and we haven’t stopped listening to it since.

Tired All the Time succeeds two prior EPs (2015’s K.I.D and 2017’s Poster Child) and a handful of singles, including the beautifully heartbreaking “Happy When I Cry” and the sexually frustrated “Elevator.” Throughout the album K.I.D tackles topics such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and young love, and their lyrics and messages remain relatable without ever feeling cliche.

Struggles with anxiety and depression resonate in “Antisocial” and “I Cannot Sleep at Night,” while “I Miss My Friends” sees the duo wondering about their friends with whom they’ve lost contact. Kara sings, “I miss all my friends but I don’t hear from them.” The line may seem simple, but when paired with the music and tone of the song, it hits you and instantly instills heartbreaking empathy within.

“Prodigal Daughter” explicates a rocky maternal relationship. The lyrics say, “My mother called me crying, said, ‘What are you doing with your life?’ and ‘Come back home before your soul is gone.'” Oppositely, “Dillon” finds Kara singing about wanting to get back at the titular boy for not treating her well. She sings, “I wanna break your heart, wish I could see you cry. But you’re doing okay while I sorta wanna die.”

Kara’s vocals soar on each song, with Bobby’s production elevating them to where we at Fuzzable can’t stop listening to them. They’re heartbreaking, relatable, fun, and charismatic. They’re everything our generation needed.
