via PopMatters

Voss summarizes the song to PopMatters thusly: “‘Bootss’ was inspired by a trip to Sundance Film Festival, after a late night concert. There’s so much surrounding a music experience that doesn’t involve the music at all, and it was refreshing to see someone [in the crowd] hold true to themselves and really enjoy just listening. Don’t apologize for your music taste, or get caught up in the bullshit that doesn’t matter.”

He breaks down the song further, saying, “‘Bootss’ is a metaphor for being true to your taste. It’s an admirable trait. You won’t be happy if you don’t embrace what you love, or if you fake it with others. The bridge lyric sums it up: ‘Punch your favorite record at the low part, back to the good.’ The song has nothing to do with footwear. And there’s a twist ending that I think is funny.”



Give me something tastes just like a cake
And lower my inhibitions
I bid my dignity adieu
Now give me that beat to fall back to
Start a new family tree
Just that kick drum, hat, and me
I’m not your enemy, just dance away society
Comatose in the afternoon
A dream of indiscretion
My favorite DJ’s at the zoo
Now give me that beat to fall back to
Punch your favorite record at the low part
Back to the good
I put my grandson on the phone
For menial discussion
I’ve got fidelity anew
Now give me that beat to fall back to
