MGMT – Kids (2008)

MGMT

‘Kids’ was the third single off MGMT’s album Oracular Spectacular. The duo are in town having played on Later live … with Jools Holland earlier this week. The single was a breakthrough for the band and one of the great synth pop records of 2008. From Brooklyn, MGMT were crowd pleasers in Blighty with their echoes of our great loves: the Flaming Lips, Supergrass, the Pixies and Suede. The album also features the enjoyable, fizzing ‘Time to Pretend’. But it would be ‘Kids’ that would live on for longer in its second childhood as Chiddy Bang’s ‘Opposite of Adults’. Have a great weekend.
