Since 2013, Synth-loving Texas duo Night Drive have unleashed a string of retro-sounding singles like “Drones,” “After Dark” and, now, “Young Rivals.” The latter is a giddy New Wave throwback that combines assured crooning with lush keyboard flourishes. Somewhere Heaven 17 and Modern English are smiling.
