Today’s track of the day is a stunning indie rock instant-favourite from Toronto’s HotKid. Out today, ‘Push Us Out’ mesmerises with some pleasingly fuzz-jangly Sonic Youth guitar, and crystal clear vocals – FFO Hurtling. The lyrics call to the universal problem of struggling to make the rent, make the payments or find affordable housing. Frontwoman Shiloh Harrison says:

“Push Us Out was largely written a few years back about facing eviction when you’re 7 months pregnant, but it just never got finished. During the recent lockdown I sent the band some tracks to play on and I think the finished version is just as well suited to the challenge of again finding affordable housing during a global pandemic.”
