Sharing kind of a fun, smart, garage rock-pop song today, "Call Me When You Get There" by LA-based, New England-bred band The Rare Occasions. The band has earned comparisons to Arctic Monkeys and The Strokes, and they are definitely palpable in the band's sound. I also heard hints of Two Door Cinema Club, Everything Everything, We Are Scientists, and alt-j.
The band's sophomore album, "Big Whoop," is due out on June 18th. They most recently shared the catchy single "Origami," which you can check out below. This song feels like a throwback to the era of polished, delicious powerpop:
I'm excited to hear more from this young band, who won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in years past. And to hopefully see them live, now that concerts don't feel so far-fetched.
