mp3: Twin Cabins – Cool Kids

In the time since New Order first rose to prominence, they have always been a huge influence in the Indie Rock world, and now that it is approaching 30 years since they released Power, Corruption, and Lies many bands are trying to emulate their sound.  Some take the New Order influences too far, and some, like Craft Spells and Twin Cabins, are able to find a perfect balance.  On “Cool Kids” off of Twin Cabins’ awesome debut album I’m Sure, Twin Cabins creates a sunny vibe with light and reverbed guitar strumming over a slightly over-produced (in a good way) drum track with mellow vocals that recall Beach Fossils’ self-titled album.  Even though we are about to reach the winter solstice and this song was released in August, I kind of feel like this is the time of year we need sunny San Diego music like this the most.  Stream “Cool Kids” below and hit the jump for the whole album.
