  • Bo Milli Releases New Song “Good Kid”

  • Norwegian singer-songwriter Emilie Østebø, aka Bo Milli released a new song “Good Kid” on January 20, 2023.


    The song is the follow-up to “FOMO”, whicxh was released last November.
    It was written by Emilie Røine Østebø and Lasse Lokøy. Produced by Bo Milli and Odd Martin.
    The track is a powerful and personal examination of her responsibility in the fight against a climate catastrophe, whilst challenging the expectations (and the norm) of generations before her.
    Bo Milli said of the song, “My parents' reaction to my own civil disobedience has pretty much been: 'you're a good kid, you don't have to change the world'. They grew up in a different reality. I think younger people implicitly live as if that world still exists — if I get some kind of education, I'll land a steady job, at some point I'll settle down, I'll grow old and have a pension. But I think, if we interrogate these presumptions, this future doesn't add up.”
  • She continued, “When I imagine the year 2100, given I could technically still be alive by then, we're looking at a 3-degree warmer world. In that world, it's unlikely I'll have a steady pension and my (future) grandkids definitely will be living in a much scarier world. And that seems very unfair.”
    She added, “No matter what I do we're probably fucked - so whatever I do (or don't do) regarding the climate crisis doesn't impact whether I'm a good kid. This is the kind of reassurance I think I look for on some level during the many bleak conversations I have about our future. The fact of the matter is, very powerful systems are pushing us towards the point of no return, possibly we've already passed that. This is a gut punch, but maybe it excuses me from responsibility...”

  • She said of lyrics, “The lines in the chorus are essentially what I’m tempted to say to myself when I want to throw in the towel and see everything play out. It’s a logic that's difficult to argue with, but nevertheless, I think it's the wrong conclusion. It’s an attitude that disregards my responsibility, and it doesn’t feel good to live like that.”
    “The climate crisis comes into everything. I try not to let it, but it’s the backdrop to everything I write. It makes everything very trivial, which shapes my music but also my attitude.”
    The song will appear on her upcoming debut album, which is expected to be released later this year.
