Intricate, melodic, and vivid: the sound of North Carolina's Annuals is the epitome of sunny indie-pop. The band's thoughtful harmonies, anthemic orchestration and percussion, and bright electronics have earned the group rave reviews ever since the release of its 2006 debut, Be He Me. Click the link above to hear Annuals perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

The sextet's latest effort, appropriately titled Such Fun, stays true to Annuals' sound but shapeshifts through many styles, including '70s-style rock, psychedelic pop and country music.
