Like the other solo material we've heard from Nashville tunesmith Mikky Ekko, "Kids" is artful in its simplicity. The Benny Blanco and John Hill-produced track starts off tender and understated before swelling up into something cheerful and life-affirming. As usual, Ekko's delivery sounds massive. Kids are gonna do what they want, he belts on the large-scale chorus, a lyric that feels predestined to justify a lot of summertime mischief.
