Discover: Unicorns at Heart

According to their Submithub bio Unicorns at Heart “arrive from Hesperia, California, a desert town a few hours outside Los Angeles. Led by brothers Rico and Ryan Loredo, their music explores new corners of indie rock with an intricate medley of radiant guitar and eloquent synth” and that the brothers “grew up immersed in the melodies and harmonies of classic Beatles, Beach Boys, and Motown while simultaneously fostering a love for the crucial innovations of Pavement, The Pixies, and Nirvana.”

The single “You’re a Mirror, Baby” perfectly embodies everything they claim to be. Sixties style power pop melodies accompanied by a definite appreciation for 90’s alternative. They are a throwback jam in the midst of overproduction and auto-tune. Just when I thought that modern rock is at it’s lowest point in history these young Californians stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. Now if only other groups had this energy and passion for nostalgia without the need to over-complicate the matter and just come out with the best rock songs they got.
