MP3: Awesome New Republic - "Stay Kids"
County Grind is all too comfortable deferring to sister blog Crossfade on all matters relating to Miami indie pop duo ANR (Awesome New Republic), but hearing the new track "Stay Kids" got us in a proactive mood. The titular song from the group's upcoming release (more about that here) rises from sweet falsetto and echoing keys to a crushing refrain that has us ransacking the house for our copy of The Outsiders. Today just might be the day to get "S-T-A-Y G-O-L-D" inked on our knuckles. Boom!
Stream the studio version of "Stay Kids" below, and as a bonus, check out some recent ANR live footage filmed at Sweat Records featuring the new track and a cover of Sonic Youth's "Schizophrenia."
