TeamMate's effortless unleashing of ear-wormy nuggets of pure pop precision. The breakout band's debut LP, TeamMate, is stuffed full of massive choruses, bright, shimmering melodies, arena-scale drums and the sort of anthemic choruses not easily removable from one's brain. "We're shooting information off each other and the result is this collaborative piece," Dani Buncher, who plays drums in the group, says when assessing the duo's seamless integration of musical talent. "We always just want to see where the sound goes."

With precise details and intentional steps, The Moth & The Flame walks a line between mass appeal and artistic integrity. Their newest album, Young & Unafraid was conceived to influence an extensive audience and cultivate The Moth & The Flame's signature sound.
