The Aces - When My Heart Felt Volcanic (April 6, 2018) Album

    Debut album out April 6, 2018 on Red Bull Records.

    I'm legitimately obsessed with this band. Probably my most-anticipated album of the year that isn't The 1975 or Maggie Rogers at this point.

    Outside of the Pianos album, these three songs are basically the only thing I have listened to this year.

    Here for it. Haim, Muna, now Aces... A lovely sub genre of music I can get behind

    Solid album, although nothing real groundbreaking. If you like HAIM, MUNA, and the new Paramore, then this will be right up your alley.

    I love all of those things.

    The re-record of Stuck sounds great.

    Cristal’s vocal rasp, especially on the bridge of it, sounds so incredible.

    Been a fan of this band since their EP last year - “Physical” and the accompanying music video had me obsessed.

    This is my favourite record I’ve heard all year.

    The fourth paragraph of that NPR review is straight-up triggering. Referencing The 1975, Paramore, and HAIM? @Craig Ismaili next time quote me.

    i was going through some of my bandcamp pages this morning, and remembered this Utah bands compilation i put out a few years ago.

    if anyone is interested, this is what The (Blue) Aces used to sound like:
     
  13. I'm only a few tracks in, but I'm loving this. I think her rasp reminds me of Dua Lipa

    Cristal is (or at least was) a huge Jessie J fan so I think her rasp comes from Jessie J a bit too.

    A great poster/person with opinions I don’t hate. Prestigious

    This was a nice surprise for me. Had never heard of them before but a good handful of these songs are superb indie pop tracks.

    Last One is a jam too. Second half of the album is even better than the first

    This album has been one of my favorite releases this year.

    Really hope it gets them the audience they deserve. Seems like a perfect fit; both bands are roughly made up of people the same age and could easily have overlapping fanbases
