The Rescues - "Can't Stand the Rain" (video)

If you’re on the fence about this band, one of the members is the composer for the ABC sitcom Modern Family, a show that gets about 10 million viewers a week. Is it safe to assume with those numbers that at least 1000 more people just decided the Rescues are indeed fun?

“Can’t Stand the Rain” has the art house vibe of 1920s flapper music combined with the jazziness of a stripped-down Ben Folds song, and Gabriel Mann’s vocals aid the accessibility of the quartet within the pop-rock scene. (He’s the spitting resemblance of Panic at the Disco’s Brendon Urie.) All four members (Mann, Kyler England, Rob Giles, and Adrianne Gonzalez) are multi-instrumentalists that hail from LA. They have been paving their way through the indie circuit with residencies at two major venues in the city of angels, as well as gaining exposure with slots on Grey’s Anatomy and One Tree Hill. Just this week, they released their debut LP, Let Loose the Horses, which is available on iTunes and Amazon.
