if you like the 1975, you’ll love this indie rock duo.

Linus Young first crossed our radar several months ago, when we spotted this Cali boy-girl pair opening for The 1975. Their brand of mesmerizing indie rock was the perfect complement to The 1975's swoonworthy sound, and needless to say, we've been obsessed ever since.

But while their prior singles like "City of Sin" and "Sister" come peppered with a dark kind of swagger, the band's latest track takes things to a lighter place. Just in time for the heat of midsummer, "Fun in the Sun" packs everything we love about July and August into one bubbly package. From the "oooh"-ing intro to the buoyant, bouncy chorus, this is the type of sound that's practically begging to be blasted from your car speakers as you're cruising with the windows down on the PCH. Just don't forget the SPF!
