Show Archive and Live: The Singles on and at the Stork Club

Aside from my usual mixed bag of indie/rock goodies, this week┬áI had the pleasure of talking to Vince from The Singles – an LA band with Detroit roots. The Singles kicked off a 2014 tour at the Stork Club in Oakland last night in support of “Look How Fast a Heart Can Break” – their excellent new album that will leave any power pop devotee bouncing. Their music and the phone┬áinterview is about halfway through the show:

The show at the Stork Club was sparse in attendance, but The Singles easily won new fans with their high-energy set. Balancing guitar hooks and dynamic drumming with melodic, walking bass lines and harmonic vocal interplay, this three-piece is certain to catch your ear, whether live or on record. Their Detroit (pronounced Dee-troit) roots show through and fans of the garage and power pop of bands from the Mitten will definitely appreciate where The Singles are coming from.
