This summer isn't going to be much of a summer. Typical summer activities are far less safe, and I can't see myself heading to very many beaches or barbeques this summer. The one thing we'll still have are summer songs, and Kid Gulliver may have given us the summer song of 2020. "I Wanna Be a Popstar" is a bright, sunny pop rock song. It's a little too low key to be power pop, but we could probably call it power pop lite. "I Wanna Be a Popstar" is the perfect simple, catchy song for driving around with the volume up. Of course, that's as long as you don't pay attention to lyrics like "I hear the interviews for things they said / I try to analyze their twisted heads / their pretty faces hang above my bed / I wonder why so many wind up dead" too closely to enjoy the fun.
You can listen to "I Wanna Be a Popstar" below. The song is available now on Kid Gulliver's Bandcamp. For more on Kid Gulliver, check out their website.
