Were cooking up a new Rock Band Rivals Season with two great singles from Wallows and Young The Giant! Lets get to it!

Pictures of Girls kicks us off, from the LA band Wallows. While the name may be new, the trio has actually been performing for many years, knowing each other since childhood and changing names as time went on. Their first single as Wallows, Pleaser, topped the KROQ Locals Only list and hit #2 on the Spotify Global Viral 50 chart. Within a year, the band was signed to Atlantic Records and released their debut EP earlier in 2018. A light guitar riff quickly turns into tremolo strumming in the intro, so right off the bat youll have a challenge on guitar. Drums largely hold down a standard beat with a few fun fills mixed in and have some good pop on the sound to give it some oomph. Partway through the song, theres even a bass break, so everyone will be feeling good about their part.
https://wallowsmusic.com/ is full of great stuff, from the new EP to a ton of merch, a sweet pink & green vinyl (that aint a color you see often!), and the list of upcoming festival appearances by Wallows.

Young The Giant has another song appearing in Rock Band this week, this time its Simplify. A taste of their yet-to-be-titled fourth album, its got a great sound for the season and has charted on both the Billboard Rock Songs and Alternative Songs charts in return. A high chorus line pairs with a low guitar riff and takes up a lot of the songs runtime. Drums nearly always play a slow disco beat, which is an excellent way to teach yourself how to navigate the kit. Before the final chorus, the song drops down to just some quiet vocals and guitar, and then comes back up to take you out.
To see what the bands up to while eagerly awaiting their new album, keep an eye on http://www.youngthegiant.com/ to stay up to date. Dont forget to see if their tour with Lights is coming to your area!
