The real thing might suck sometimes, but the French concept of your teenage years is always perfect - self discovery, chemical (and peer) exploration, finding your personal brand, passing out on Sparks-soaked linoleum and doing it all over again.
But living for today is boring when you can be a Hollywood star from the glamorized redux of 80s pop culture. The Teenagers name drop Dirty Dancing and proclaim their love for all things 90210, M83's Saturdays=Youth is a self-described ode to teenage life on MTV, and Kavinsky's "Flashback," (from the 1986 EP, of course), documents the cool kid's dangerous post-prom moonlight Ferrari excursions.
Now France's David Grellier, known on the electrobloghaus circuit as College, is rebuilding the cache of your forgotten early-morning/after epiphanies right alongside his peers, retouching blemishes and socially awkward incidents with the stroke of a synth. Call it Kavinsky on klonopin or M83 on a hott clap holiday.
