An urgent quarter-note pulse, loud guitars, and an inspired lead vocal performance underscore the simple message that the youth of the world are ready to be leaders.

Hopper is a 5-piece Alternative Indie Rock band from Ottawa, Ontario. Their latest single "Caught in the Moment" is a song that deals with the difference of political opinion between generations, and the sense of confusion that can arise from conflicting of world-views.

This upbeat, optimistic rallying cry is about taking a moment for self-reflection, and ultimately making up your own mind about what is important. Our world has changed so completely in just one generation; we have gone from abundance to struggle so quickly, so completely, that if you weren't paying attention, you might not have noticed. An urgent quarter-note pulse, loud guitars, and an inspired lead vocal performance underscore the simple message that the youth of the world are ready to be leaders - the moment will be here soon. It won't be perfect, but it will be necessary.

We gonna break it
We couldn't take it
Our generation is caught in the moment
We're impatient
And mistaken
We're not coming for you
So lower your guns
