, the latest newcomers to the Baeble block. The boys from Texas may not be on your radar yet, but they splashed onto the scene with a debut from DJ Nic Harcourt, and tagged along with Third Eye Blind on their recent tour. With a Vampire Weekend bop-pop-indie-rock energy, the boys' sound is upbeat and infectious, and it's also substantial. Don't expect to be slapped by Icona Pop's (sorry Charli) made-for-MTV-movie pop, "I Like It" is more of a dark indie comedy; think Wristcutters: A Love Story
Though it has a feel good sound, "I Like It" isn't a pink band-aid for a bad day. In the words of one TEAM* member, "'I Like It', in particular, means a lot to me. Due to the fact that I've thrown my health to the wind on numerous occasions in the not too distant past to 'find myself' or whatever, it's my understanding that people hurt themselves while trying to do the complete opposite. I want people to have fun when they listen to the song, but dig deeper and gain some perspective as they get more of it. Looking for the answers is a good thing, just don't hurt yourself in the process."
