Connecticut’s (shoutout to CT) Mates Of State are releasing their new album Mountaintops on September 13th. With male-female vocals and melodies as sweet and colorful as a bag of Jolly Ranchers, the indie-pop band’s seventh album shows that they’re just as capable over horns and pianos as they are over synths and bouncing bass lines. They had me 18 seconds into track one. Head over to Rolling Stone to stream the album. But then come back here.
