I'm Glad It's You

Hometown: Redlands, California

Genre: Rock

Why We're Excited: I'm Glad It's You cut its teeth in the emo scene, and some of that genre's hallmarks remain in "Curbside": the jarring juxtaposition between low-key quiet and teeth-rattling loud, the openhearted lyrics about devotion and alienation, the life-and-death intensity of it all. But the band also wraps the song in an agreeably anthemic, downright poppy arrangement bouncy enough to send fists pumping in joyful defiance.
