Because I just discovered this band a few days ago and it's quickly become one of my favorite bands of all time. It's an indie pop band formed by Nate Ruess, who you might remember if you liked The Format (an indie rock/pop band from 2001-2008). I really love these guys just because they put there all into their songs; it's something I don't think you really see from most artists these days. Not only are the lyrics meaningful, but the music is a great fusion of horns blaring and clam bass melodies. Everything seems balanced, and they know exactly how to manipulate your emotions: while most of their songs are pretty darn happy-go-lucky, some give off a more sad vibe (check out "The Gambler"). They're not super well-known yet and they only have one album released, but oh boy do I find them fantastic. Check em out!
p.s. I've been missing in action for a few months now and this was the only thing I could come up with upon signing in again.
p.s.s. Since I didn't spend much time looking around, feel free to direct me to an appropriate thread if need be. cc:
