The Tryout: The Neighbourhood
I found this latest Tryout on the BBC list of new music. The Neighbourhood kind of remind me a bit of Various Cruelties (whose album is finally coming out today in the UK; not sure when we Stateside can get it) and it isn't a band that critics are necessarily going to flock to because they aren't reinventing anything, they're just making catchy music. So far, they only have two songs but so far so good.
And if you still haven't jumped on the Various Cruelties bandwagon, I really think "Great Unknown" would have a shot at song of the summer and the band could be a Foster the People-like breakout if these songs got some love from US radio. (And their other single Chemicals and Neon Truth are just as catchy.)
