Last we heard from Rizzle Kicks, the UK hip-pop twosome were taking a satirical look at their generation’s media addiction on July video single Lost Generation. As it turns out, Harley Sylvester‘s cynicism isn’t limited to trashy reality TV—their perspective on contemporary romance is similarly jaded.

Fans will be able to find this irreverent jam and much more on sophomore set Roaring 20s, scheduled to hit UK record stores and online retailers September 3, via Universal Island.
