Here's Your Soundtrack To Summer, Straight From L.A.'s Cool New Bands!

We don't mean to toot our own horns, but there's an insane amount of talent comin' out of the City of Angels lately. When it comes to music, L.A. is a no-brainer home to some of the biggest names in the biz. And considering we've got warm weather on lockdown, performers from our fair town know a thing or two about summer playlists.
With that in mind, we searched high and low for local legends that are bound to be the next Best Coast. These three bands will mark your morning soundtracks with surf and sand, and fill your nights with boozing and boogeying. We even have a band for those times when June gloom hits and we’re unfortunately forced indoors (gasp!).
So, turn up your speakers and get ready to groove to this list of sick homegrown sounds.
