The duo have been busy in the studio arming themselves for 2015, all the while giving listeners their fix with a series of impressive mixtapes jam-packed with straight up fun. Their latest single, Animals, has racked up almost 250,000 plays and is truly the pop-indie-disco number you've been waiting for. Big fans, we're pleased to welcome the pair into the mix for i-D.
