"Stompa" is a song performed by Canadian singer/songwriter Serena Ryder. The song was written by Ryder and Jerrod Bettis for Ryder's sixth studio album, Harmony (2012). The song was released as the lead single from the album in September 2012 in Canada, and then in February 2013 in the United States. On February 15, 2013, a French version of the song was released to Canadian iTunes.
Lyrically, the song speaks about how music can be a remedy for most of life's problems -- that people should "clappa" their hands and "stompa" their feet. On the track, Ryder said "it's about encouraging people to get outside of their heads and realize that everybody’s got problems and everybody's got issues and life is hard but music can really help you out".
The official music video for the track premiered on December 21, 2012 on MuchMusic, and was uploaded to Ryder's official VEVO channel on January 23, 2013. In the video, a little girl named Violet portrays a younger Ryder shooting arrows at symbols indicating the four elements. These shots are intercut with other girls shooting arrows, as well as shots of Ryder performing the song with her guitar in a shadowy white room. On the day of its premiere, a behind-the-scenes video was uploaded on MuchMusic's website. In that video, Ryder explained that the video is based on the same idea as her album, that if you separate yourself into one element, you will not succeed, you will only succeed if you bring in all of the elements together.
