Either, Maroon 5 playing Ok Computer, or Local Natives playing Rhianna songs. One or the other. A little over-emotive, and a bit too earnest. Very British in its production, meaning there is a poppy sheen to it, even though it’s presenting itself as “raw”. A lot of processed guitars, synth-bass, and keyboards galore. Very catchy and accessible, I could see these guys getting very popular, but on VH1, not NPR.
