Brooklyn-by-way-of-Cleveland producer/indie rock powerhouse, The Kickdrums, have made their triumphant return with the release of “Love Is Fine”, their first new single in two years. “Love Is Fine” is a culmination of dreamy synths, ethereal vibes and classic hip hop rhythms; putting the signature sound that made the project such a cult favorite since the release of their 2009 debut, Just A Game, made them one of the most talked about underground acts in New York. The track premiered on Consequence of Sound this morning alongside an intimate confessional by Alex Fitts (the creative force behind The Kickdrums) explaining its origins. “Love Is Fine” will undoubtedly please Alex’s dedicated long-term following while attracting new fans to the project. You can listen now on Soundcloud, Spotify or Apple Music.
While it may be two years since The Kickdrums released new music, Alex Fitts has been busy expanding himself creatively by exploring other projects such as his gritty garage rock band Fake Guns and his collaboration with Sizzy Rocket, Shiny Wet Machine. Alex has also continued his story production career where he has worked with such notable artists as RZA, Machine Gun Kelly, Kid Cudi, Cruisr, SWIMM and most recently Vacances. Still, he would always find himself tinkering on new music for The Kickdrums; his flagship project that really launched his career. With the release of “Love Is Fine”, Fitts kickstarts a new EP that will play to the strengths of The Kickdrums while incorporating the new found artistic maturity that comes along working on such a diverse range of projects.
Always revered for his eclecticism, Fitts will undoubtedly solidify that reputation with the release of this forthcoming EP due out early next year.
