The Who: The Candescents (Columbus, OH)
The What: A good song need not be complicated like rocket science for it to wedge itself into your consciousness and the Candescents prove that straight up with their pretty damned delightful and – for lack of a better word – incandescent summery jam, “Drink To Paradise” from their upcoming EP, Grass.
Perhaps it’s the buoyant pop sheen over garage rock guitars or maybe it’s the idealistic vocal glow that frontman Alex Harris gives to a new love that makes the tune such a keeper. Whatever it is, now we have a video, a collection of behind the scenes moments from tour life with Pale Waves (courtesy of director Aysia Marotta), as accompaniment.
The Where: The Candescents are Alex Harris, Alex von Lehmden, Miguel Alfredo Acero III, and Cody von Lehmden and you can keep up with and find out more about them via the usual suspects: their official website, Facebook page, and at @TheCandescents on Twitter.
