With Joywave‘s last track, “All I Want,” they balanced anthemic pop with some touches of rock for an immediacy often sought and rarely achieved. For “Tongues” they take it one step further. Within 10 seconds, this track hits like Pixy Stix and coke dissolving in a Red Bull. By the 30-second mark, your eyes will be dilated. Eyelids will feel no gravity. Muscles will tense. Finger tips will jitter. It’s pure electronic pop, and it’s done very well.
