Dreamcar – “Kill For Candy”
What happens when you combine 3/4 of no doubt with 1/4 of AFI? You get Dreamcar! You may have seen their name on the Coachella lineup and thought, “Who?” This new supergroup is also known as AFI’s Davey Havok and everyone in No Doubt except Gwen Stefani.
The Courtneys – “Silver Velvet”
You may have seen Vancouver Trio The Courtneys open for Tegan and Sara last year. Side note: music runs in the family, one member is their cousin! This band’s fun, throwback sound is perfect to get ready for longer sunny days.
Jimmy Eat World – “Get Right”
If you love the heavier side of Jimmy Eat World, here`s a more angsty one off their last release, Integrity Blues.
Wintersleep – “Freak Out”
There’s something so great about the build of a Wintersleep track. Their rhythm section creates such a solid heartbeat for this one, coming off their latest release The Great Detachment.
K. Flay – “High Enough”
