Review: "BUTTERCUP" - KID TRAVIS



Kid Travis just came out with a single that you'll find yourself singing along to after just a few listens. “Buttercup” is a light and happy song; a love song to a girl full of sweet compliments. Sometimes, you just have to tell the person you like how into them you are, and Kid Travis does not hold back with showing his interest in this girl. All he wants to do is spend time with her, expressed cleverly through his lyrics and very positively in the upbeat tune holding throughout the whole song. It’s so catchy that it’ll quickly become stuck in your head, and it makes for a very easy and fun sing along with your friends. You could even send it to your crush as a way of shooting your shot. Kid Travis would definitely approve.



In the intro of the song, you can hear a light instrument chiming and the strumming of a guitar creating a beautiful lead into the first verse. This verse features the same rhythm established with a soft beat in the background complimenting Kid Travis’ voice beautifully. All the good and mellow vibes from this song continue throughout the whole chorus as well, with the introduction of even more instruments layering beautifully behind the vocals. With the bridge we can see the instrumentals we have grown used to begin to die down a bit in order to highlight the rich tones that Kid Travis’ voice can hit in a song. His voice is further highlighted when we get to hear a very well done vocal run in the middle of the final chorus.


A new up and coming artist producing music with indie punk and trap undertones, Kid Travis is coming in hot, surpassing 150 million streams on Spotify. He was born in Bristol, Pennsylvania and began making music in 2013. In recent years, he has blown up on YouTube by covering songs by popular artists, the most famous one being a mashup of “Sad” by XXXTENTACION and “XO TOUR LIFE” by Lil Uzi Vert. Some of his covers have even been recognized by the original artists of the songs, notably Post Malone and Bryson Tiller. His subscriber count on YouTube surpassed 480,000 subscribers to date. He has since begun to focus more on creating his own music, with his song “Strawberry Shakes” having almost 70 million plays on Spotify. His career has really taken off, and to Kid Travis the sky's the limit.
