The KickDrums is the recording alias of Brooklyn-based producer/singer/songwriter Alex Fitts. He has just released a new single titled Bubblegum and speaking of the new track, Alex said, “With this track, I was trying to explore new and different combinations of music for me as a producer/singer,” he explained. “At times my music may sound like a band, but it’s really just me with a drum machine and some instruments. This song was recorded in a small beach town named Estepona in southern Spain which I think helped lend it a breezy vibe.”
Bubblegum is as fun as it sounds, it starts with organ chords ( that remind me of being at Padres baseball games when I was younger) before hearing Fitt’s smooth easy vocals and some harmonically-rich backing vocals that are bound to get stuck in your head. It is a song you will listen to over and over.
