Black Kids - Wizard Of Ahhhs

I know I’m a little late to the game on this one, but allow me to just add my two cents.

“I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You” is a gorgeous slice of indie pie. Playful synths right up front, echoing vocals, boy/girl singalongs,, call and response, bouncy bass, not to mention a simple song structure. In fact, the repetition and the lack of extrapolation are really the band’s weakest point. Definitely an infectious song worth putting on repeat.

Likewise, “Hit the Heartbrakes” has that catchy-as-hell quality in the chorus, with the same types of vocals as their single. It is a much more guitar-focus song than “…Dance With You”, “Hit the Heartbrakes” and thus avoids the repetitious trap, utilizing a guitar solo and a half-assed synth “bridge” to shake up the structure. Nonetheless, it’s still an exceptional track.
