Chicago-based band What Gives features familiar faces in the form of Andy Hendricks (Annabel), Joe Henderer (Elway), Delia Hornik (ex-Dowsing) and Marcus Nuccio (Pet Symmetry). Started in 2014 as a way for a couple of friends to blast out poppy hooks, What Gives now has a full-length out that – like the title suggests - feels good.

 

If you are looking for some crunchy power-pop tunes that come with more whoa’s than you could possibly need in a week, What Gives has got you covered. Tapping from the same vein as early Weezer and “Something To Write Home About”-era Get Up Kids, What Gives ended up with an album that might not be flawless but is charming from start to finish.
