The Unlikely Candidates


About The Unlikely Candidates

The Unlikely Candidates are a hook-driven indie rock band initially formed as an acoustic duo. Eventually expanding the lineup to a five-piece, the Fort Worth, Texas-based band was also able to expand its garage-kissed sound in bigger, more sweeping directions. In 2013, they inked a deal with Atlantic and released their debut EP, Follow My Feet. In early 2016, they returned with the catchy single "Your Love Could Start a War," which made a strong Billboard chart showing. The band caught fire in 2019 with the release of the streaming hit "Novocaine," which reached number one on the Alternative Songs chart. The sharp and melodic "High Low" and "Gemini" arrived the following year, with all three tracks appearing on the group's 2022 full-length debut Panther Island. ~ Gregory Heaney
