Bad Suns, Kiev

When: Mon., April 27, 7 p.m. 2015

Last year, the catchy-as-all-get-out Bad Suns oh-oh-oh’ed their way to national attention with their debut, Language & Perspective. It’s decidedly pop, but each song is roughed up almost in secret by added textures and unusual percussion choices. Hits like “Cardiac Arrest” captured enough hearts locally to bump their Orlando show from the intimate Social to the massive stage next door at the Beacham. What’s refreshing about the release is where the band’s head was at in the process. Singer-guitarist Christo Bowman told HuffPo that their intention was to buck the trend of single-song success and create an album with a clear progression, intended to be listened to front to back. So play the thing at least once all the way through before the show if you’re a modern-minded fan who exclusively got caught up in “Cardiac Arrest.”

Price: $15-$18
