fun. – We Are Young
(Feat. Janelle Monae)


fun. know how to do things right. What else would you expect from a roster featuring members of the Format, Steel Train and Anathallo. The latest from the trio is “We Are Young,” the first single off their yet-to-be-titled sophomore album. The track features a sweet but brief cameo from R&B songtress and Grammy nominee Janelle Monae. Strangely, though, this song is the closest the band has come to making a mainstream pop hit. Don’t let the Aim and Ignite-esque intro fool you; once the chorus rolls around with its pounding electric drums, you know you’re dealing with a different kind of fun. Nevertheless, “We Are Young” is a good one that’s got me excited for the band’s next full length, which we can expect early next year on Fueled By Ramen.
