As its title states, the lead song is all about motion. KID BE KID exemplifies this by shifting and changing the arrangement as she goes, introducing new sections to form a somewhat unpredictable song structure. One would actually have to sit down with pen and paper to figure it out. The song’s video continues this theme: graphics morph perpetually, never still, but ever humming with life. Further, the lyrics urge us to get up and get going, with the hook being a one-word imperative: Move.

Read our feature on KID BE KID’s single ‘Naked Times’

The producer/singer/beatboxer tells us how her album separates itself from a cultural clichè: “Truly A Life Goal But No Ice Cream breaks away from the widespread dream of wanting to be like ‘Barbie and Ken’ – the constructed standard of gender and beauty, the filters through which we view ourselves and others. With this album, I’m putting a magnifying glass in your hand, made specifically for real emotion and deeper meaning. All you have to do is pick it up, and the journey into an exciting world begins.”
