Escape in Hybrid of Future Bass & Pop

Kicks N Licks are back with yet another ethereal masterpiece, “Tribal,” featuring the lovely Colorado based singer, Adara. What started as just a few chords, evolved into a pop fueled serenade that is breaking the barriers of what we know as bass infused vocal pop today. From catchy synths to uplifting melodies, Tribal is a sonic representation of embracing the beat of your own drum and just letting life run free. Having already received direct support from The Chainsmokers in their “Nice Hair” podcast, Tribal is en route to populate itself amongst the ears of both bass and pop enthusiasts alike. Tribal was premiered exclusively via Dancing Astronaut on Monday, November 14th and is available to stream or purchase on most major music platforms.

Tribal is the second song we have done with Adara and it’s definitely not the last! The simple, uplifting melody along with Adara’s big, pop influenced vocals made “Tribal” a really fun song for us to work on. ”

“I believe we all have an inner warrior. It takes courage to let that out and society may not understand it, but I say, beat your drum anyway and embrace your own wildness”
