Madison Kozak has been releasing fantastic song after song recently, and her newest song lives up to that expectation. “Household”, released Friday, November 8th is a nostalgic track that is perfect for fall and this upcoming holiday season.
Kozak wrote “Household” with Thomas Salter, Gordie Sampson, and Simon Wilcox, and the song was produced by Big Loud’s Joey Moi. Growing up in a household with seven siblings, she digs deep to channel the feeling of home.
“Household” is poignant in its composition entirely: both the lyrics and its production. The verses feature beautiful guitars that compliment the message the words portray, and there’s a perfect build-up when the chorus and second verse hit. The production is sweet and overflows with melodies.
It seems that Kozak’s specialty songwriting-wise is her use of imagery. You hear it on songs like “First Last Name” and “Hey Highway”. In “Household”, she takes her listeners back to her childhood home and hometown and describes what it felt like to live there growing up. She mentions the slightly out-of-tune piano and her parents wedding photo; the tape marks on the wall and the window she used to sneak out of; it’s detailed enough to make this song about Kozak’s life, but so many people out there can relate to this message, and that’s part of what makes this song so special.
She also sings about the struggle of leaving home, even though she loves her life in Nashville, saying, “I’m trying to pack light / But you can’t pack life in a Samsonite,” she sings on the harmony-driven chorus. Kozak is quickly becoming one of the most exciting new stars to look out for. She’s versatile but has a sincere sound, which is unique in a time where new music is being released constantly.
