The Aces Essentials

The Aces Essentials

The Aces’ sleek alt-pop can make the most devastating loss sound oh-so-good. Raised on ‘80s pop, the band strike a balance between bubbly hooks and moody rock melodies, a mix they honed in Provo, Utah, while still teens. Their 2017 debut single, “Stuck,” turns a bad relationship into a groovy guitar bop, a sound they’ve continued to refine. Frontwoman Cristal Ramirez’s straight-up lyrics are delivered sweetly, as guitarist Katie Henderson, bassist McKenna Petty, and drummer Alisa Ramirez help package her frustrations and self-realizations in jangly riffs (“Fake Nice”) and synth-filled reveries (“Daydream”).
