This year I was introduced to Detroit indie pop band Two Cheers, who released what I firmly believe is one of 2015’s best records, Splendor, their debut. With glistening guitar licks, simmering basslines, pop-tactic drum rhythms, and frontman Bryan Akcasu’s Cure-esque vocal stylings, this song will create a confetti party between your ears.
There’s just something about the easy groove and the way Akcasu sings the lyrics “Mmmm/We explode” at the beginning of the chorus that gets me. Every. Single. Time.
