Why We're Excited: Porches' Aaron Maine has taken several different approaches to songcraft — slick synth-pop, lo-fi home recordings — but "Country" showcases him at his most vulnerable, raw and hopeful. Opening with a subtly adorned vocal that recalls the openhearted warmth of Adem, the song paints evocative sketches of a relationship as it forms.
