New York City four piece, The Classic Kids, have unleashed a killer debut EP, Forever Strong, today! Comprised of Eric James, Max Dean, Mattyboy and Mikey G, The Classic Kids are a combination of none other than classic 80’s electro-pop, retro and modern alt-pop, making them the band to watch during 2016!
Perhaps what drew my attention to these up-and-comers was their refreshing honesty, especially during the opening lines of the anthemic “Drive,” – “Sometimes I don’t feel right in this world ’cause love is a dying art.” There’s more where that came from, I’m sure!
We dived in to the Forever Strong EP with The Classic Kids themselves with an exclusive track-by-track commentary.
“Drive” to us is a song that embodies just living life to the fullest with your friends when everything else has you down. We feel that the track signifies a time in our lives where we discovered true camaraderie and appreciation for the ones who have stuck by us through thick and thin.
Forever Strong is available now here.
