What's better than being halfway through the work week? Being halfway through the work week and having a dance party! That's what's in store in our latest advance album stream, where we're featuring the latest from the Bynars, X vs. X. The Boston-based duo, named after a race of humanoids in Star Trek, play appropriately futuristic-feeling electro pop and have shared the stage with bands like fun. and Math the Band. X vs. X looks at the extremes in life: love and hate; dreams and reality; happiness and sorrow; and the complexities within. Those kind of themes can be a drag, but combined with the Bynars' dancefloor-conjuring synth hooks, the result is equal parts smart, relatable and fun.

RIYL: Foster the People's dance party glow; the Neighbourhood's slick slinkiness; Atlas Genius' mix of intimate lyrics and dreamy synths.

Sorry, this exclusive stream has expired. Stay tuned for more upcoming albums streams on AllMusic!

X vs. X is out September 17.
