MGMT marked their place in music pretty securely ever since their song ‘Time To Pretend’ was featured on the television series Skins, and many other media mediums alike. Now, their fourth single release, ‘Kids’, offers the same indie rock pleasures, laced with electro beats that got them a large amount of popularity via television.

‘Kids’ is an uplifting and catchy release too, with the vocal chorus hook “Control yourself / Take only what you need from it” being one that will get caught on a loop in your head for a substantial amount of time without fail. MGMT have done it before, and it seems that they’ve managed to do it once again.
