Though we had no warning whatsoever that the boys from New Zealand duo Kids Of 88 were dropping their latest album ‘Modern Love’ here in Australia, they gave it a soft digital release here back in October last year. Naturally, we did our darndest to cover the singles from it thus far including the most recent ‘La La’, which dropped in September.
The new year, however, has delivered a brand new single – and a new video to boot, with the clip to ‘The Drug’ going live within the last 24 hours.
There’s still plenty of electro-pop goodness to be found here from the boys, but it’s been laced with more of a “band” feel that will no doubt win them a number of new fans. The clip’s loaded with ’80s goodness, right down to the fluoro clothing and floppy discs (where the hell did they find them!?).
