The Artist: This Century
In honor of their final show in my hometown of Orange County, California this week, I had to make Music Monday all about one of my favorite bands. This song is on the album that will be the band's last as this summer will be their final hurrah before they call it quits and venture off to new projects. I have been to 13 shows by this amazing band and I cannot be more disappointed about their breakup. Thank you for 8 amazing years of music, Joel, Sean, Alex, and Ryan! I have had such a great time following all your success and getting to know you as a band over the years.
The Song: "Hot Friends"
Where you heard it first: On their brand-new and final album Soul Sucker. I just received this album in the mail last week (yes, I still listen to CDs) and immediately fell in love with this song.
Why it’s been stuck in your head: It's one of the catchiest songs off their album and one that I always listen to when I'm in the car. It is just as fun and upbeat as fans have come to expect from this band.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: If you haven't listened to this band yet, you need to. Yes, this is their final album, but that doesn't mean you can't appreciate their entire discography. Starting with their introductory EP in 2007 to their final album released last week, you will not be disappointed with their music. I promise!
