Kick are back with “Setting Tina”, let yourself be wrapped up by the dark plots of their “sweet noise”.

REVIEW

Kick are back with a new single, “Setting Tina”, that introduces us to the sound path that will culminate with the release of their next album, and judging by the song in question, the premises are just exciting.

The duo from Brescia have put aside the downtempo electronics, and have started a writing process drier than usual but with the same experimental attitude; the project is enriched by the touch of Marco Fasolo (Jennifer Gentle) at the production, who instills their music with a psychedelia that is skin and bones, and yet visionary and eerie.

The mixture of elements stands out at first listen: Nicola Mora’s biting and raw guitar riff, Chiara Amalia Bernardini’s spoken word that marks the time, Scott Reeder’s slick bass that gives a hypnotic stoner touch to the whole; it’s all so solid but also barely balanced, between imagination and obsession.

Keep an eye on Kicks and follow them on the fall dates of their tour: their show is always something unique to see and the upcoming album is certainly the kind of music that will promote them on the international underground scene, with the visibility they always deserved.
