Kids In Cages and Dropout Kings teamed up for an explosive rap metal track titled “Problems”. The energetic chorus, starting at the 1:12 mark, and breakdown, at 3:06, perfectly showcases the Arizona-based trap-metal band’s signature sound.
Hailing from the small principality of Liechtenstein, Kids In Cages offer “sweaty modern rap rock with relevance” infused with politically charged and socially critical lyrics. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Linkin Park and Twenty One Pilots, the duo, consisting of Finlay Sky Davey and Gino Bianco, has already made a notable impression with their energetic stage performance. They are described as a “danceable, professionally structured band with fun at the forefront”.
In 2021, the duo released their debut single “Tired”, which was followed by a string of successful gigs at Waves Festival in Vienna and the Moon & Stars Festival in Locarno. The year continued with support shows for headliners in eastern Switzerland, and later on, in January 2023, they dropped “Horsin’ Around”, produced with Pitchback Studios in Cologne, Germany, showcasing their versatility musically. To cap it all, “The Fuck You Said About My Wife?”, their latest and daring single, was released in April 2023.
Overall, Kids In Cages is a must-listen for anyone looking for politically charged rap metal that doesn’t sacrifice quality or energy. Their sound has already captivated audiences across Europe, and it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the world catches on.
