THE KICKDRUMS “BREATHE AGAIN”

While at it’s core, the track is rock oriented, The Kickdrums’ signature use of meticulously layered synth and masterfully posited drum machine tracks are very much present. The result is a beautiful track that fuses an ethereal soundscape with pulsing drums and a huge hook.
