Hear This: The Unlikely Candidates

The indie-rock gods delivered earlier this year when The Unlikely Candidates were discovered at a late night SXSW showcase. Hailing from Fort Worth, this five-piece group is right on track to take over all of our speakers with their catchy, alternative sound.

“Follow My Feet” packs a serious punch and serves as a perfect example of what these guys are capable of—the chorus is easy to sing along to, the beat is impossible not to dance to, and the lyrics are subtly inspirational: I don’t know where, where my path with lead, but I’ll follow my feet and hopefully they’ll keep me on the ground and I’ll keep walking to the sound.

The next song you need to check out is “Howl.” This track is just as catchy (if not more) and a little bit darker. If you love the raspy vocals and chest-thumping beat, you’re going to love what The Unlikely Candidates have in store for you.

The guys played a live show at JBTV in Chicago a couple of weeks ago, giving fans a preview of what’s featured on their new EP, Follow My Feet. The EP dropped this past Tuesday, September 24th and it’s awesome. With a perfect balance of scruff, rebellion, and rock anthems, The Unlikely Candidates are ready to go far.
