Lone Kodiak celebrates the release of their exhilarating new single, “Let’s Hear It For The Kid,” out today.



Lone Kodiak celebrates the release of their exhilarating new single, “Let’s Hear It For The Kid,” out today. It’s the second single from the East LA quartet since their triumphant return to form with “Corner Booth”, released last month on July 7th. Fresh off the buzz of that offering, this latest track salutes the underdogs and dreamers who dare to defy societal norms and expectations.

Born from a late-stage creative process and influenced by iconic bands like Pixies and Dinosaur Jr., “Let’s Hear It For The Kid” marks a thrilling divergence from Lone Kodiak’s typically refined sound. The raw and rebellious single is an invigorating blend of anarchy and joy, with a pulverizing intro, captivating hooks, and an innovative in-studio distortion that signals a new direction for the band.

Lead singer, lyricist, and guitarist Dainéal Parker describes the song as a mix of storytelling, a rallying cry, and crowd work. With the vocal styles of Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Prince serving as inspiration, the lyrics weave an engaging narrative of a maverick’s journey, encapsulating a spirit of risk-taking and relentless pursuit of passion.


Let’s hear it for the kid who is smart but gets bad grades, who is talented but disorganized, who is creative but unfocused, who works hard but burns out quickly, who drops out, quits, runs away, and despite the risk, starts something new in pursuit of what could very much be pure fantasy.”

-Dainéal Parker, Guitarist/Vocalist


“Let’s Hear It For The Kid” is a testament to Lone Kodiak’s versatile musical talent. Produced by Kyle Mangels and recorded at Big Bad Sound in Los Angeles, the band’s latest release is set to be a milestone in their musical journey.
