so lets set the world on fire, we can burn brighter than the sun

♫ fun. – We Are Young (feat. Janelle Monáe)

  • Who: Former members of The Format and Steel Train
  • What: Buoyant indie pop, like Steel Train, Hooded Fang, Wildlife
  • Where: New York, NY + Facebook / Amazon
  • When: 2nd LP Some Nights is out on Tuesday Feb 21st.
  • Why: Janelle Monae adds absolutely nothing to this track but if her guest spot gets more people listening to fun. then I’m all for it. Their debut album was a highlight of 2009 and after bandmember Jack Antonoff’s band Steel Train tore up 2010 its time these guys finally got some more music out. (Especially since I hear Steel Train is no more!) “We Are Young” contains all the hallmarks of a fun. song. Nate Ruess’ silky grand storytelling, the peppy rhythm section, and the bouncing keys, are all signs you are having fun. I would write more about how I am exited for this album but the thing is streaming here so I have to go listen to it now.
