Hear “Big Kids,” The Blind Pets’ Sneering Crack At Adulthood

D’n't be such a little kid/ Big kids learn to swim.

Austin trio The Blind Pets—who are self-proclaimed "rock 'n roll faith healers"—are releasing their album Sharon Is Karen on April 15 via their own label, Sup Bob. Today, the stoner garage-punk band is premiering "Big Kids," a fuzzy, Cramps-like track about the sink-or-swim mentality in the music industry (and, let's face it, a lot of other industries). Don't be such a little kid, the growling chorus goes, Big kids learn to swim/ I like it/ I like it/ I'll never give in.

"'Big Kids' is a reference to adulthood," the band's Joshua Logan told The FADER over email. "The tune is about the music business and how it chips away at you.” At the end of the day, we just gotta save ourselves sometimes, and this mordant track from the "rock 'n roll faith healers" might do just that.
