Hit play on Oakland, California-based alternative artist, Zpextre’s latest single, Save it for the Kids and end the self-obsessive cycle of naval-gazing.
Save it for the Kids is an infectiously feel-good track that serves the awakening reminder that the world is bigger than you’ll ever know, but no matter how small you feel, you still have a part to play. Rather than sending you down an existential hole while imparting that wisdom, Zpextre laced the indie psych-pop earworm with plenty of funk and soulfully distorted grooves.
Zpextre may always run unapologetically with his eccentricity but the commercial potential of his sound never takes a hit. Even with avant-garde defiance of constraint and ideas of aural perfection, the single that was produced by Kool Kojak has all the marks of a summer high-vibe playlist staple.
Here’s what Zpextre had to say about the single:
“The innocence of a child allows them to discover themselves both physically and mentally. It is paramount to the development of love, compassion and humanity. For, in the end, humanity made this world. We have to save this innocence; we have to leave this world better than we found it. Save it for the Kids!”
