(by Dawn Reed) Auckland New Zealand new wave duo Kids of 88 are back with their sophomore album Modern Love due out later this summer. The first single off it "Tucan" is a fun worldly mix of native chants, hand claps, serene lyrics, and gorgeous synths. I'd nominate it as the chill anthem of the summer of '12. And this kaleidoscopic nature/city video (directed by Levi Beamish) blends beautifully with the track produced by Jordan Arts and Sam McCarthy. And the lyrics "I want to go to a place that I know is real. I need to find a new place for my mind to heal" just make me want to do the same. And that would be the shores of Oahu to surf...
