Nothing sounded quite as cool in 2010 as Everything Everything’s My Kz Ur Bf. They seemed to take the dance-rock genre of the mid-naughties pushed forward by Franz Ferdinand and friends, and bring it to creative new heights. It was truly a welcomed sound, as I always believed this kind of music was too quickly dropped by bands and critics. Everything Everything now fight to keep music fresh and exciting in 2013 with their soon to be released album Arc. Kemosabe, a single from the upcoming album, is as frantic and grandiose as My Kz, but has a decidedly sweeter sound than its predecessor, and… well… far less violent. I may need to wait for the lyrics to figure out what the hell lead singer Jonathan Higgs is saying, all I know is it is a proper good-time track.
