Indie Spotlight: The Kicks

Posted in News on October 5, 2010

The Kicks are salted with the South but still pop like soda. Go ahead and slap a MySpace tag on them like rock/indie/alternative. They’ll only peel it off and reinvent the genre. For full-length debut The Rise of King Richie, the band called upon Grammy-winning producers Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay) and Vance Powell (The Raconteurs, Kings of Leon, The White Stripes). With melodic ballads like “Good Morning” or fist-pumpers like “Sore Thumb,” the result will heal with words, mend with music, and all the while breathe a little life back into your lungs, a little love into your bones.

The Kicks will play Austin City Limits Music Festival. BMI Stage / Friday, Oct. 8 / 2:40 p.m.
