Singles Club: Oak House + Saw Black + GEMS

Consider Singles Club your musical matchmaker. I do hope you'll give all these ready to mingle bachelors and bachelorettes your ear as you listen to some new favorite tunes. Read on in the hopes of finding your musical love connection.

From that musical hotbed of Athens, Georgia, Oak House's "Esque" is a study in musical magpie-ism. But it's definitely a focused, controlled chaos. Listen many times, as you'll hear something new each time.

Richmond's Saw Black bears a distinct similarity to Neil Young, both in terms of vocal tone and that feeling of listening to a treasured, dusty classic. "Azalea Days" is a beauty, torn and frayed and coming apart at the seams just so.  

With breakup wounds still fresh, the GEMS twosome takes on the rawness of a Valentine's Day without your former amor. Inspired by the heartbreak of finding old Valentines and other love tokens, the back and forth of the hers & his delivery is backed by tension and a bevy of buoyant beats.
