The doom-pop/shoegaze band known as Kicking, based out of Jackson, Mississippi, kicked down the doors of buffaBLOG with their latest single, “Hate//Sex.” Bobbie Flanders pushing the vox; guitars being shred by SG Shepard and JD Burns; former Buffalonian Lacy Ellinwood holding it down on bass; and newest member, Lexie Gay, are who make up Kicking – their songs are heavy and delicate simultaneously, full of sludgy guitars and an impassioned vocal presence… Don’t be fooled, the unity between the hurt vocals and dropped-tuned guitar gothiness is strong enough to break bricks.

“Hate//Sex” appears on their latest EP, Goodbye Party, out now on Candlepin Records – check it out below via Bandcamp or find it on Spotify and Apple Music.
