Love is Love. 

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 

SHKN was written after I decided (yet again) to try online dating. My experiences with modern matchmaking apps were bittersweet, with its fair share of great and not so great dates. Still, this mobile option presented yours truly with more opportunities than my reclusive, daily routine of writing and playing music 🙃 

You know the feeling you get when you’ve met someone you really like, but you don’t wanna give it all away so you keep it to yourself? It’s exciting yet almost unbearable! After a month of dating, my partner said to me, “You make me feel like a shaken bottle of soda!”. 

Inspired by her, and our love for late 90s pop/rock melodies and instrumentation, SHKN throws in a modern twist with its lyrics, harmonies layered with bright textures, biting electric guitars and an irresistible summer-y head-bop. It expresses the emotions and feelings you feel when there’s undeniable chemistry between two people, and how wonderful it is to fall in love.

lyrics

S H K N 

I took a leap of faith 
With a glowing face 
for a very first date 
Now you come as you please 
Like i’ve got something to give 

We’re right at the start 
We swear we’ll never ever part 
Headstrong, we move along 
Evenly, over the odds 

Standing on my feet, falling asleep 
While my sugar sweet’s dancing to the beat 

You make me feel like a shkn’ 
Shkn’ bottle of soda 
You really got me breakin’ 
Breakin’ all my walls down 

Cut right to the chase 
If you may 
There’s not a minute left to waste 
I’m on the edge to fight 
The power shortage from left to right 

Spell it out for you 
with opposable thumbs 
You are the only one for me 
You’re everything I’ve dreamed of 
You got me 

Standing on my feet, falling asleep 
While my sugar sweet’s dancing to the beat 

You make me feel like a shkn’ 
Shkn’ bottle of soda 
You really got me breakin’ 
Breakin’ all of my walls down 

And if all our thoughts 
They overflow 
And crystalize like secrets 
All we fight for won’t get old 
If liberty is what unfolds 
There’s everything you need to know now 
everything you need to know 

You make me feel like a shkn’ 
Shkn’ bottle of soda 
You really got me breakin’ 
Breakin’ all of my walls down
