Madison Kozak’s new track, “Loud House” is out now, August 5th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new song below.
Madison Kozak follows up last month’s clever “One Girl To Another” is the incredibly honest and nostalgic “Loud House”. The song was written by Kozak years ago, and the message of the song still holds true, if not more so now that time has passed. Kozak grew up as one-of-eight children, and although she reflects on her childhood with love, she is sincere in acknowledging its difficulties of it as well.
“Growin’ up in a loud house // You get used to the sound // Happy or sad // There’s always a crowd // And when you’re sixteen // You can’t wait to move out // Out of a loud house”
In a lot of ways, it’s a continuation and older sister of 2019 release “Household”. While that story is more reminiscent and poignant, “Loud House” cuts straight to the heart of growing up. It’s the best and the most difficult, and you can love your family while processing the dynamics and patterns you grew up learning.
“Mom and Dad are shoutin’ // Throwing words around // Don’t know what it’s about // But it don’t sound good // And she starts crying // He peels out the drive // And then it’s all quiet in the neighborhood”
“I wrote ‘Loud House’ within the first year of signing my publishing deal, so I’ve been sitting on it for a minute,” Kozak shares. “It felt very special from the day I wrote it. I remember running across the street to Big Loud and playing it right after I wrote it, because I was just so excited. It felt like an actual piece of my heart in song form.”
The production, melody, and Kozak’s vocal delivery on this song is some of her strongest work yet. This tune is a showstopper in a way that her breakout “First Last Name” is. The sonics are slow enough to really digest the lyrics and the story, and every detail is nuanced and stunning.
It’s no surprise that Madison Kozak continues to release great song after great song, and it seems she has no plans of stopping. It’s refreshing to hear a nostalgic perspective that hits both the sweet memories and the ones harder to swallow in a more modern country song. The longing for peace and less chaos growing up to not being able to navigate the quiet is a very realistic narrative and one that should be explored more often.
