This Is Our Jam: Rainbow Arabia, "Without You"

Rainbow Arabia has been releasing their take on tribal electro-pop for a while now, but “Without You” is the first single catchy enough to set them apart from like-minded contemporaries like Gang Gang Dance. While Rainbow Arabia’s West African influences are still present, “Without You” exudes a new found love of '80s bubblegum that would play nicely over the credits of a John Hughes movie. I bet Cyndi Lauper would be proud.
