With “All the Cool Kids,” Violet Saturn sets the tone for what fans can expect from the album as they share their wisdom and talents beyond their years with songs that can speak to Rock audiences that extend far past their fellow Gen Zers. Penned and sung by 17-year-old Lauren, “All the Cool Kids” addresses disillusions of the real world and some of the ugly yet relatable truths about life’s disappointments and perspectives—while also taking a shot at the kids who peaked in high school. The first project Spencer (20) ever produced, “All the Cool Kids” features rich synths, varied sounds and guitar work recorded in his bedroom closet.
“We chose ‘All the Cool Kids’ as the centerpiece for the album because we loved the nonconformal message of it and how it celebrates individuality, being yourself and feeling your feelings—which is something we made a point to do while writing this entire project,” said Violet Saturn. “It’s been about two years since we wrote it and it is still one of our very favorites and feels so timeless.”
All the Cool Kids with its brash, Pop-Punk vibe is an undeniable blend of the duo’s many influences including Avril Lavigne, Paramore, Lana Del Rey and No Doubt. Filled with an extra dose of angst and frustration, the collection of songs was undoubtedly influenced by period in which they were written—while stuck at home in the pandemic, suspended from performing each week. Initially written on a home computer, when recording the final project, the Southern California natives turned to heavy hitters like drummer Josh Freese (Devo, Guns N’ Roses, Paramore) and bassist Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction, Alanis Morissette) to help bring the fun, vibrant yet heavy songs to life.
