About Lonely Little Kitsch

“…just another future song, lonely little kitsch.” – David Bowie “Diamond Dogs”

Lonely Little Kitsch is a two-piece alt-rock band from Niagara, Canada.

Making the most of the quarantine when the pandemic hit in 2020, Kristen Goetz and Nolan Jodes spent a lot of time creating songs together. The ease of making music together was hard to ignore, and it evolved into an alternative rock project without boundaries or expectations.

The release of their debut single, “The New Scene” caught an unexpected buzz for the duo, finding placement on CBC Radio across Canada, FM radio including 102.1 The Edge, and even a video feature for NHL games on Sportsnet.

Aside from Lonely Little Kitsch, Kris and Nolan run the music site From the Strait, as well as music PR and marketing through FTS PR. They’ve also just launched their indie record label, Swear Word Records.

ABOUT THE SONG: “The New Scene” out now 

Put simply, “The New Scene” is an ode to fake people who like to “trend-jump” and try to appeal to new groups of people, over and over. To dig a bit deeper, it’s about the inauthenticity of social media content and the effortlessness of pretending to be someone you’re not. The video is the opposite of the song – it’s just us being us, goofing off, not taking ourselves seriously at all.

“Lyrically, it’s pretty straightforward- it outlines a person bandwagon jumping again and again, immersing themselves into whatever new scene they think will gain them the most favour, or following. It’s all about optics, and the false belief that the public is always interested in their new personas. Pair that with a few catchy melodies and Nolan’s rock riffs and addictive bass lines, and that’s “The New Scene””.
– Kristen, Lonely Little Kitsch

“Musically speaking “The New Scene” is a buzzsaw. Moving forward – one speed, no stops. There’s no reason to complicate things. We wanted to write a big ol’ rock song to get people moving  – and I think the frenetic guitar paired with Kris’ wonderful melody we were able to (hopefully) do that.”
