St. Lucia - 'Elevate'

Capturing the Zeitgeist of current indie rock, St. Lucia's 'Elevate' is heavy on the synth rhythms and light on the pop hooks.  In fact, just a few bars of the beginning may lead you to believe you are watching a classic John Hughes film.  

There are other bands that also implement the sound:  Bear Hands and Future Islands are just a couple. Nevertheless, 'Elevate' is still a quality single.  It even has a sound reminiscent of Miami Sound Machine at the end.  (Yes, that's a good thing).
