The new Hush Kids track "Love Is a Made Up Word" echoes with soft piano, deep guitar and brilliant harmonies from the incredibly talented Jill Andrews and Peter Groenwald. It's been a very successful first couple of weeks since the release of their first single. The song currently has 45,300 streams on Spotify and can be found in Spotify's "Acoustic Love" and "Fresh Folk" playlists and in Amazon Music's "Fresh Folk & Americana" playlist!
The lyrics of the song really stood out to me when I first heard it because of how beautiful the verses and choruses were phrased. The description of someone's pulse quickening and the sensation of being lighter illustrates the very genuine and organic feelings associated with the emotion of love. The emphasis, however, is not on the word "love" it is on these exciting instincts that are felt yet cannot be defined. I think that's why the song becomes so much more powerful. The rawness of the lyrics depicts sensations that cannot be bought or exchanged through material things. It is more of an authentic feeling that's ignited because of another person. I love this modern-day ballad and believe it is a refreshing step into the Folk and Americana genres.
In honor of its exciting start in the listening world and altogether exquisite musical composition, here is a clip of of the acoustic version of the song. We hope you enjoy this version as much as the original!
