California art pop project The Wild Wild know their way around a hook. Their single, "When We Were Young," clawed its way up the UK Spotify Viral 50 chart, and it takes one listen to that song's massive chorus to understand why. It's the brain burrowing pop of fun. with a dash of the maximalist electro-fusion of Passion Pit for good measure.
But one great song does not a promising new act make, but don't worry; if you loved "When We Were Young," you're going to love the rest of the Kids EP. If you cut your teeth on the sonic uplift of 80s pop, you're going to be immediately at home with the EP's other tracks including the vibrant "Kids of the Sun," and "Young Blood." Imagine what would happen if the Edge were in a synthpop band today, and you're starting to imagine what the record sounds like.
