For the past few years, US natives Kids At The Bar made their presence known by churning out a slew of electrofying remixes. Their takes on Passion Pit, Empire of the Sun, and even Ellie Goulding solidified the duo as a name to watch as time went by.
Welp, time went by. Their first EP, Exiled, dropped in early November and all I have to say is aslkdjfasljdfa. The title track is jaw-dropping electro at its finest. The song’s initial buildup is a bit extended, but you’ll see why when the beat finally drops. Here’s a tip: it’s not for the faint of heart.
I’ve always had my eye on Kids At The Bar, but this release completely blew my expectations out of the water. The direction they took for their first original release surprised me quite a bit, but don’t for a second confuse surprise with disappointment–this one is BIG.
