The song was written by band members Tim McEwan and Tyler Lyle and produced by McEwan. It has a running time of six minutes and twenty-one seconds and is in the key of E-flat major. The synth solo on Kick Drums & Red Wine was performed by Oliver McEwan.

A remix of Kick Drums & Red Wine by Dezza can be found on The Midnight Remixed. There are two versions: one that is regular length and another that is extended.

An early demo of Kick Drums & Red Wine was released as a prize during the Fall 2020 alternate reality game (ARG). Titled Kick Drums & Red Wine v2, it is rather short and has little in common with the final version of the song. The instrumentation is completely different, having a more progressive house feel akin to WeMoveForward. The only vocals present in the demo are the first verse and chorus, which seem to be unchanged in the final version.


Some look to the sky for truth
I look across the room
Katie's dress in full bloom
Yellows and blues

But I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine

Some people find it with devotion
Some with gold and some with bourbon
Some like praying to the blue sky
Some like putting on a disguise

But I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine

I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine
I prefer kick drums and red wine
