((Kordan)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Sweet swirling shoe-gaze with lots of synths and stuff. Sometimes that's just what you want. And during those times, you should give Kordan and go. Who? Yeah, I'd never heard of them either until recently.

You see, this blissful Brooklyn band just played a show with The Drums (both bands have EPs out on Twentyseven Records too) and I thought The Drums' pure pop magic might apply to their stage partners as well. Well, I am here to tell you that Kordan's got that magic pop thing going on too (I'm also here to finally take back that wheelbarrow you borrowed from me all those months ago, but we'll settle that in a bit).

Where's this band been all my life? I always need another group to help round out my dream-pop collection ("Loveless" gets so lonely sometimes). And I always appreciate a band that employs pretty falsettos and climbing crescendos. Gosh, I just love falsettos and climbing crescendos. Does that make me creepy?

Anyway, if you like any of that old shoe-gaze Britpop stuff, then Kordan has a stronger than fighting chance to become a part of your listening life. It's hip to be synth.
