Whether or not you’re familiar with the Cleveland production duo’s output to date,  The Kickdrums’ first Booth feature is sure to come as a surprise.  Why?  Well, it isn’t hip-hop, club-pop, or R&B by any stretch of the imagination, nor does it feature any familiar faces—in fact, the newly-released title track off their debut EP is more of a downtempo rock song.  After the initial shock wears off, though, you’ll notice that the instrumental backdrop is absolutely gorgeous; in addition to piano, guitar, and percussion, the twosome blend synthesizers, strings and brass into an arrangement that’s intricate without being overwrought.  Just A Game‘s falsetto-laced vocals and sweepingly ambiguous lyrics are sure to elicit comparisons to British arena-rockers Coldplay, the superficial similarities shouldn’t distract listeners from the unique sound the Kickdrums bring to the table.  For more pleasant surprises, pick up a copy of the Just A Game EP when it hits stores March 6th.
