A lot of oysters but no pearls? Not this time though. Oyster Kids are an elusive electro pop duo from L.A. who uploaded their debut track Creepy to Soundcloud before it found its way onto an Urban Outfitters mixtape.

Their latest track and third single altogether is titled Gum (Everybody’s My Friend) and is a refreshing and summerly upbeat tune along the lines of acts such as Gotye or Foster The People.

In a statement to Consequence of Sound, Oyster Kids comment on the track:

living here, we’re constantly surrounded by pressures to fit in. It’s very easy to get caught up in it all. ‘Gum’ is our summer anthem for misfits everywhere.
