New Music Monday<br />Fun.: We Are Young ft. Janelle Monáe
By Mike Bailey: Television commercials seem to break more bands than record labels these days, if you watch even the slightest amount of TV you’ve likely heard this track plugging the new Chevy Sonic. I first became aware of Fun. (yeah, don’t forget the period) when their 2010 debut, Aim and Ignite, excited many in the blogosphere. I was less impressed and pretty much forgot about the band until this track surfaced in late 2011. With just the right mix of indie and emo this song has potential to be the feel good anthem of the spring. The full album, Some Nights, will be released February 21 on Fueled By Ramen – the label that brought you Panic! at the Disco, Paramore and Gym Class Heroes. Watch the video below and check out Fun. at the Majestic Theater on April 11.
Enjoy! Mike Bailey @oldmanjukebox
