DON'T LET THE SUN GO DOWN.
New year, new sounds, and what better place to start than with Kids of the Apocalypse. Brought to our attention earlier today by the always reliable Disco Naiveté, KOTA (as they call themselves) are about the most exciting thing we've heard in ages. DN describe it as "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy as produced by M83", and while that is lofty praise indeed, it actually seems impossibly spot-on in this case. There's next to nothing known about the anonymous collective beyond the cryptic messages found on their website (which is kind of amazing in its own right), but with a masterful aesthetic and a home run on their first at bat with the song and video for "Masters of the Sun", we couldn't be more excited to hear more. What a way to start the year.
