Concrete Jungle", Ibiza-born, Antigua-based artist Au/Ra has today released her second single called "Kicks", which continues to showcases her penchant for surrealist lyricism as she sings, "What’s dust to you is gold to me, but we’re just different books to read - where every single chapter is another cliff hanger". Backed up by a spirited rhythm section and thick, brooding bass-heavy production, "Kicks" is an alternative pop song of the highest order, carefully sprinkled with flecks of bright electronics and intelligent synth work.
Speaking on the track, Au/Ra has says:
"'Kicks' is about accepting uniqueness. I find my thrills when writing songs, listening to good music, being creative or fangirling over a TV series, while somebody else might get a kick out of doing something completely different that feeds their passions. 'Kicks' is about being okay with who you are and your differences, and owning that."

"Kicks" is available now on iTunes.
