“GOD HELP US” FROM TORONTO-BASED SONGWRITER/MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST KIRTY
Toronto-based songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and long-time Fast Romantics member Kirty releases the poignant, grungy, distortion-rich single, “God Help Us”. Co-produced with long-time collaborator Josh Van Tassel and Fast Romantics bandmate/songwriting partner Matthew Angus, “God Help Us” had its Canadian radio premiere via The Strombo Show on CBC Radio. The melancholic track will appear on Kirty’s forthcoming solo album set for a release in summer 2021.
With devastatingly heart-breaking lyrics like, “Broken minds screaming lies out of their hideout, dressed in fear they reappear and we’re all crying our eyes out, “God Help Us” was inspired by a number of tragic incidents the songwriter observed on the news one evening.
“God Help Us is a tiny window into my thoughts in moments where I’ve felt like I’m watching the world fall to pieces,” shares Kirty. “Witnessing a series of the most horrible things happening in the word, strung together in half an hour of television is an intense feeling, and we’re all absorbing this waterfall of information every single day.”
Kirty continues, “As the song reflects on some of these issues, it also sits on the mantra of “if there is a god, god help us” which to me is my surrendering statement to the chaos that’s swirling around me, but also touches on some larger questions and personal perspectives.”
Release Date: March 8, 2021
