How many times have I listened to this song today? No fuckin’ clue. Lost county already.
Kip just released the second video in his In The Wild Sessions – a stripped-down performance of “Southpaw” from the Red River Gorge in Kentucky.
“’Southpaw’ started from a feeling of being on the outside looking in on modern society,” Kip said.
I don’t want my edges to be smoothed to fit into a box.
“I woke up the day we wrote it feeling like I was born in the wrong era. I grew up a boxing fan and a Southpaw was always a rare sighting, unpredictable and hard to prepare for. I wrote the song with Westin Davis in South Dakota and we’ve always understood each other like brothers and being kind of cut from the same cloth. I knew he would get my headspace that day and he always brings the magic. And on the recording side of things, I don’t think I’ve ever felt so much juice in a session.”’
