Favored Nations is DFA affiliates James Curd and Surahn Sidhu and Justice collaborator Morgan Phalen. Together they make frenetic, house-infused dance-pop with smooth new wave overtones. The title track from Favored Nations’ upcoming Amazon EP demonstrates the California/Australia trio’s prowess in that regard. It’s a joy; it’s a breeze. Blast it below.
