Northampton, Massachusetts indie-rockers And The Kids released their third full-length album, When This Life is Over, on Feb. 22 via Signature Sounds. To promote the release, they stopped by the Paste Studio to perform three tracks from it—"2003," "Butterfingers" and "No Way Sit Back." Frontwoman Hannah Mohan's towering, versatile vocals pervade each of these tracks, complimenting the innate grace and altruism of the band's ethos. "No Way Sit Back" is a clear album standout and Mohan's gliding chorus vocals are a life-affirming manifestation of the human spirit. The song takes aim at the heteronormative society and media that keeps LGBTQ voices in the shadows ("The world was never made for us"). Another cut, "Butterfingers," centers on a twisting guitar riff and an interstellar synth line as Mohan tries to arouse her own wave of kind-hearted clamor to block out life's unnecessary racket ("That's why I sing loud / Hoping we can drown it out").
