Mikky Ekko is no one trick pony, that’s for sure, but when it comes to creating gut-wrenching pop ballads, Ekko is no stranger. Understandably, some of you may have begun to question his versatility as an artist, as a result of singles like “Pull Me Down,” “Stay,” and his latest rough demo, “Disappear,” but I can assure that the Nashville-native has much more in the tank than that. To prove my point, I present you with “Kids.”
Admittedly, this new single doesn’t stray too far from Mikky Ekko‘s usual expansive sound, however, it does move to a much more enterprising beat. To give this track a very “epic” feel, there is a very heavy emphasis on pounding drums, while a vast, sweeping chorus tops it off thanks to some deeply drenched keys and synths. While it may not stir up the same sort of attention as “Stay,” we can be sure that it will still become a hit, although it may be for a very different reason this time around.
