Being cool can be so D-U-L-L. Sometimes you just want to pretend you'll be twenty-something forever and relish the fact that it's always midnight somewhere and someone's always making out with someone else on a dance floor far, far away (or maybe very close by).Night Drive's latest single—"Young Rivals"—is pure, synth-heavy indie, instantly recalling The Killers, Bowie, and a bit of early U2. It also crystalizes that nevermind-the-future-freefall moment. Hang on, is this a lost track off the Breakfast Club score? Whatever, we're down.

"Young Rivals" is out today, 10.7, via Sound Control Records.
