New Zealand duo Sam McCarthy and Jordan Arts (aka Kids Of 88) were last on our radar when they hit Australia for a series of live shows back in June. Back then they’d just dropped their latest single ‘Tucan’ and were teasing us with the promise of a new album – ‘Modern Love’ – for later in the year.
Well said album is due for release over the ‘ditch’ at the end of next week (presumably here in Australia too, but we’ve had nothing confirmed) and the gents have just released the latest single from it – ‘La La’.
We don’t quite know how they’ve been able to squeeze so much sunshine into two minutes and 38 seconds, but by gad they’ve done it, with a song that’s a little bit rock, a little bit electro and a whole lot pop.
And okay, things get a little repetitive towards the end, but we reckon Aussie radio could do much worse than to pick up this fab slice of New Zealand pop.
