I haven't tried this out yet, but I have a distinct feeling that Brooklyn's Candidate might provide a pretty good soundtrack for the next international flight you find yourself stuck on. The band's steady spaciness and alt-guitar chug-chug energy could work as an excellent backdrop to aviation... and likewise, the band has some lofty dreams, coming a long way even just since their singles posted from last year.
Their newest song, 'April Again,' charts singer Cedric Sparkman's realization of not getting what he wants out of love, while his bandmates' backing vocals provide a down-to-earth muse to second his thoughts. This back-and-forth between the trio's members is a great strength, and makes the group's shiny guitars and rolling bass lines work together as a well-oiled machine. Though it also sounds like this girl might still be giving him some issues... Catch them when they play The Trash Bar on Thursday May 17th. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
