The Unlikely Candidates at Club Dada
Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, The Unlikely Candidates are an indie rock band initially formed as an acoustic duo by childhood friends Kyle Morris and Cole Male in 2008. Eventually expanding the lineup to include guitarist Brenton Carney, bassist Jared Hornbeek, and drummer Kevin Goddard, the band was also able to expand its sound in bigger, more sweeping directions. In 2013, the band signed on with major-label Atlantic and released their debut EP, Follow My Feet. In early 2016, the Unlikely Candidates returned with a hooky new single in “You Love Could Start a War,” which made a strong showing on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart.
Recent Rumors hail from the small town of Tyler, TX, but are already making big moves with their music. Their first single 'Blow Me Away' was released on Feb. 17th and gained the attention from Alternative Press who immediately included the song in their weekly roundup of '10 songs from unknown artists you must hear' as well as their Spotify Discover playlist. Recent Rumors were also featured on Substream Music Magazine's website shortly after the release and have already opened for bands such as Waterparks, The Rocket Summer, William Beckett of The Academy Is, plus more!
