Just Kids, the latest from Houston’s Polaroid Summer, takes a universal moment of reflection and entangles it with a synthwave sensibility and a wistful look at the innocence of childhood. Thick with throwback symbolism ranging from Sega Genesis and Nintendo GameBoy, to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, these are the relics of a certain age that will resonate with many along with the song itself as a mark of what once was.
Polaroid Summer marches ahead with a dance-friendly melange of ethereal memories, uplifting self-talk, and a look at the quintessential first-love in the life of a teenager.
We were dead-broke, we were living out of cars
If only we could have known at the time how good life was, we could have held on somehow. Let us never forget to cherish love while we have it.
You and me is all we ever need
Polaroid Summer is a 4-piece indie rock band from Texas. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
