    Great new band, especially if you're a 1975 fan; currently opening for The Naked and Famous on their tour.

    Dude, seriously thanks so much for posting about these guys in the 1975 thread a couple weeks ago. According to last.fm I've already racked up 153 plays on them since then. Not a bad song on "Daydream Forever," and the two new singles are ridiculously good.

    Gonna move onto their first record soon (once I've played out the last one). Happy to have hopped on the train right before a new record. Everyone should check these guys out!

    Been following these guys for a while, I Still Wonders one of their best songs. Slow's good, especially the chorus. Excited for the album

    Definitely not a "new" band. He's been making music under this name for almost ten years. Haha. I haven't listened to him since 2008 of 2009 though. Whenever he toured with 3Oh3...

    According to the band's Instagram, we're getting a "big announcement" today, which I assume is album information

    I hadn't heard of him until he opened for The Naked and Famous last fall; really fun concert experience. Check out his 3 latest tracks if you can; great stuff

    I've been following him since Wayward Fire was out...Hold On was one of my top 10 tracks in 2011. Still a really weird billing haha. Didn't know he played bass for 3OH!3, makes sense now!

    Nope. Prestigious

    I had no idea this dude was still making music! Yes, it was very, very different back in the day.

    Tom Powers of The Naked and Famous helped produce this new album, so that probably had some effect in this change of sound

    He did a live stream on his Instagram about 30 minutes ago and played a track he hasn't released yet, called "Bliss" - sounded amazing, as per the 3 already-released tracks. Stoked

    Don't recreate the scene, or reinvent the meanings Supporter

    These new songs are straight 80's pop/new wave songs and they are really catchy. I am personally a fan of I Still Wonder because I'm a sucker for sax. But Slow has a nice build and driving sound to it. On first listen Wallflowers was my least favorite. Good stuff though.

    Yeah ISW is definitely the best of the three here imo, has such a good build and the final minute is pure bliss. The other two are also great but ISW made me so hype for this.
