After hearing the glitzy pop sensibilities in "NoLo" and the R&B/hip hop influences in "Jitter," it's no doubt that Grace Mitchell
's "Kids (Ain't All Right)" came to us as a bit of a surprise. Blaring electric guitars create a solid wall of sound and Mitchell's vocal resemble - dare I say it - Avril Lavigne. But the good Avril Lavigne. When the punk pop singer was in her prime. The Lavigne we all love.
And although the 90's grunge sound feels like a 360, let's be real: Mitchell has always been a rock star, whether or not there was a distorted electric guitar behind her. If you go back to 2015's EP, Raceday
, you'll notice that she has always radiated extreme confidence in her lyrics and experimented with chaotic, fast-paced instrumentation. So really, "Kids (Ain't All Right)," feels like Mitchell in her truest form yet.
