about

„The beat in 'Kids' sounds just like from a professional studio on the West Coast. It's topsy-turvy - high-end sound and a distinctive, hypnotizing voice.”

Taken from review on Brand New Anthem: newanthem.pl/hey-karen-twerk/ [in Polish]

lyrics

glue your fingers together
see the pretty results
bite your nails, sharpen your tail
you'll need more weapons than just this gun
cut your skin with paper
we'll see what's inside
shiny objects, pretty sparkles
are all you need with your short attention span

this isn't battlefield but still it takes some balls
to realise that you act like you know it all
you tend to pretend to be something real, but in the end
it all goes away, my dear old friend

you're so so so so sophisticated
it's real it's fun
it's what's the cool kids play
you're so so so so so intoxicated
it gets worse in a moment
take your best shot

kinda is not so far away from sorta
at least, according to you
that's what they taught you in your childhood
it's just one of things you people do
you say it's wrong to be transparent
but i value my transparency
at least i'm not covered in blood
at least you have nothing on me

this isn't real world but still it takes some time
to realise that we all will be just as fine
without your presence, your essence, though we are peasants
in your eyes of magnificent kind

you're so so so so sophisticated
it's real it's fun
it's what's the cool kids play
you're so so so so so intoxicated
it gets worse in a moment
take your best shot

whatever is pretty close to however
at least, according to your friends
that's what you do at your parties
it's one of the things you people do
you say it's wrong i'm getting mainstream
but i like to be run of the mill
at least i don't have to pretend
at least i get to be myself

you're so so so so sophisticated
it's real it's fun
it's what's the cool kids play
you're so so so so so intoxicated
show me what you got
and take your best shot

Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
