Oaklynn

Oaklynn

Bands of brothers—history is riddled with them. From Creedence Clearwater Revival to the Bee Gees to Kings of Leon to The Beach Boys to Kool & The Gang to Good Charlotte to Pantera to, well, you get the point. Oaklynn, a band out of Dalton, Ga., brings its own exceptional symmetry to this illustrious group. Made up of two pairs of brothers—Josh and Seth Smith and Tripp and Tate Howell—Oaklynn purveys catchy, hook-driven synth rock with gossamer vocals. Fans of Postal Service will love the band’s single “Everytime.” Over compressed beats, tambourines, digital bleeps, and reverb guitars, Tate Hollowell sings, “Every time you come around here lately, you lift me off the ground.” Oaklynn’s ethereal songcraft has a similar effect. Next time you need a serotonin surge, give these guys a try.

The Young and The Reckless

Darling Parade

When Darling Parade couldn’t find a genre that described their sound to their liking, they took matters into their own hands and invented one. It’s called popcore, and for the uninitiated, it sounds a lot like emo-pop—the kind of music you’d expect to find on Fueled By Ramen. And although they may not appreciate the comparison, Darling Parade has a lot in common with acts like Paramore and Flyleaf. Each band softens their aggression with soaring female vocals. On “Never Wrong,” guitars run wild, alternating from chunky, buzzsaw riffs to urgent peals while singer Kristin Kearns powers through with her impressive pipes. You’ll find this dichotomy of ferocity and femininity throughout all the band’s songs, from the polyrhythmic “What You Want” to the galvanizing “Take This City.” Popcore, emo, rock—the label doesn’t really matter. Just crank it up and you just might feel young and reckless again.
