Introducing… The Little Kicks!

For fans of… OK Go, Hot Hot Heat, Franz Ferdinand
“could well be one of the next big indie-pop bands”– Q
Aberdeen’s The Little Kicks return with their immensely uplifting new single, Bang The Drum Slowly, out 1st December 2017 via Loosen Up Records. The single is taken from the album Shake Off Your Troubles, out now via Loosen Up Records and is available to buy iTunes and stream on Spotify.

Bang The Drum Slowly is now available to stream on The Little Kicks’ Soundcloud page.

Bang The Drum Slowly is a mightily infectious slice of off-kilter indie pop. It races through with scuzzy hooks, glitchy beats and sweeping harmonies, resulting in a delightfully quirky sound akin to the likes of Hot Hot Heator OK Go. It’s the fourth single to be taken from their latest album, Shake Off Your Troubles. Describing the album, lead singer Steven Milne explains “the themes of the record would be a feeling of happiness, gratitude and to be thankful with what you have and not take things for granted. Furthermore, not to let others get you down or let anyone put you in your place.”

Since forming five years ago, The Little Kicks have received critical acclaim from the likes of NMEQClashand The Skinny to name but a few. They have also received support from BBC 6 MusicBBC Radio 1Radio Scotland and XFM as well as Shake Off Your Troubles being nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year Award. Now, having shared stages with acclaimed bands such as The MaccabeesMaximo Park and White Lies, The Little Kicks hope to continue charming listeners further with the unique, vibrant sounds of Bang The Drum Slowly.
