Swedish producer Style Of Eye is one of the buzziest tunesmiths of the year — he co-wrote “I Love It” for Icona Pop alongside Charli XCX and has a lot of big things tipped for 2014 — and now his biggest solo effort to date has been unveiled with his new single “Kids,” featuring Scandic pop oddball Sophia Somajo (also known as Soso) and our beloved Elliphant (in an uncredited spot).

The icy four-on-the-floor beat suggests that it’s a standard dance fare, but the acidic lyrics are in a class of their own: “Everyone’s special in the exact same way / You live your life on a Facebook page,” Soso sings over the hypnotic rhythm in a blistering takedown of — of what? Modern culture? Youth? Consumerism? Hipsterdom? It’s not clear, and really, it doesn’t matter.

It’s gloriously catchy, and simultaneously weird and mainstream. Listen below before it’s everywhere.
