WHY YOU’LL LOVE THEM: Call it “chicks & fuzz”, the contaminating pop spewed by Candy Hearts is practically Kelly Kapowski meets Blink-182’s Dude Ranch. The New Yorkers toss sunshine hooks out the window, turn the volume up and rekindle every aspect of pop punk you adored as a teen with melodies carved out of paper fortune tellers and heartsick crushes.
SOUNDS LIKE: Amazing high school memories splashed in fuzz.
