Kicks N Licks Releases New Remix Today
The San Diego duo, Kicks N Licks, may have just wrapped up their Young Mind tour, but they’re still on fire, maintaining their momentum in the studio. The duo, made up of Andy Joplin and Jerrod Jordan, released their newest track, a Kicks N Licks remix of Ember Island’s cover of The Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face.”
The track offers up a soothing mix of electronic synths and melodic lyrics. The track opens with the gentle bars of piano intertwined with lyrics, holding true to the Ember Island cover. The song’s beat starts to pick up around the one minute mark, and when the beat drops, it’s like a musical flower blossoming. The resulting sounds are reminiscent of Mitis, mixed with their own indie/ electronic vibe. While not the biggest fan of The Weeknd’s original track, I would wholeheartedly recommend this version to music lovers.
Jerrod shared that they were closing their sets with the track while they were on tour, and everyone was “vibing and singing along,” so they wanted to share the track with fans as a free download. Be sure to check out the exclusive track below.
