Every once in a while you come across a new artist and think know they’re going to be massive, and soon. That’s exactly what came to my mind upon hearing Nashville alternative pop trio Forts Like Vana for the first time. The band’s first single, “Love You Right”, released on January 10 and has amassed over 10,000 Spotify plays in just over a month.
As proof that the hype train is only just getting started, Forts Like Vana released their brand new EP, This + This = That, on February 13. These four insanely catchy pop-rock songs, chock full of personality and originality, will have you out of your seat and dancing in no time. Supporters on Twitter have even recently recommended the band to Fall Out Boy‘s Pete Wentz and Sleeping With Sirens‘ Kellin Quinn. Here’s hoping they pay attention, because I’m betting Forts Like Vana will be sharing the stage with artists on that scale in the near future.
Check out This + This = That‘s infectious opener “Love You Right” below and if you dig it as much as us, you can stream the entire EP on Spotify and purchase it via iTunes. Also be on the lookout for the band performing at SXSW next month!
