In the pop scene BAUM has been making a name for herself with her brand of alternative pop being some of the most honest and relatable pieces of songwriting I’ve heard. Previously this year she delivered a cathartic track called Fuckboy which was all about self love, not giving a toss about what everyone else says about you and taking the usual damsel in distress trope and turning it on its head. Now she’s released her most delicate and intimate piece to date in the form of Bad Kid.

“This is the most special song to me and the most vulnerable one that I’ve written,” BAUM explains. “It’s about losing someone and wishing you could go back and fix everything that happened, just put your relationship in a pretty box.”

Usually with a song I feel a personal connection but with this one you’re invited into BAUM’s world and you’re experiencing the pain she’s going through with each lyric hitting you like the knockout blow in a prize fight. You feel everything she’s going through as a result with lyrics like, “I didn’t care when you still were around / Why did it take ’til you’re six in the ground? / To say that I’m sorry for the things that went down,” being heartbreaking to hear and poignantly written. It’s an intimate song that will have you reaching for the tissues.
