The Mowgli's' third full-length album and second for Photo Finish/Republic Records, 2015's Kids in Love finds the San Francisco outfit delivering more of its melodic, upbeat dance-rock and indie pop. This time out, the seven-member, multi-voiced ensemble worked with producer Tony Hoffer, who previously helmed albums by such acts as the Kooks, Silversun Pickups, and Fitz & the Tantrums. Also featured on Kids in Love are songs the Mowgli's collaborated on with the production team Captain Cuts (who worked on the group's 2013 album Waiting for the Dawn), as well as producer/songwriter Matt Radosevich (Walk the Moon, One Direction). Included on Kids in Love are the singles "Through the Dark" and the buoyant positivity anthem "I'm Good." ~ Matt Collar
