This local trio hails from the same big-ticket emo-rock sphere as Paramore and Panic! at the Disco, but its space-y new single signals a slight shift in direction: “We Are Young” was produced by Jeff Bhasker (known more for his work with Kanye West and Alicia Keys) and features a cameo by future-soul weirdo Janelle Monáe, with whom fun. just completed a college tour. The kids appear to be down, too—tonight’s homecoming show is sold out.
