Download: Bad Veins - "Dancing On TV"; Revolution Show June 5

When Two-Door Cinema Club comes to town on June 5 to headline Revolution, their well-chosen supporting act is well worth a listen by fans of similarly punchy pop-rock. Cincinnati duo Bad Veins has popped in and out of mainstream consciousness, but certainly are radio-friendly enough to push past the verge again. The pair's blend is sort of like a meat-and-potatoes indie rock that you'd expect from the Midwest -- straightforward, feel-good, honest, and friendly-sounding.



For proof, check their latest single, "Dancing on TV," that boasts both a melodic sensibility and use of synthesizer that recalls vintage Weezer. In fact, the video for the song, which places the band in a faux-retro bandstand kind of show, even recalls Weezer's old "Buddy Holly" video. It sure also recalls the frothy, distorted easy fun of late-period, "Stacy's Mom" Fountains of Wane. This isn't a bad thing -- the chorus is easily anthemic and the production is slick, the kind of thing that could easily graduate from the club circuit to Top 40 radio.

The tune is the breakout from the group's upcoming full-length album, just its second, titled The Mess We've Made. It comes out on April 24, but you can download "Dancing on TV" for free below in exchange for your e-mail address.

Bad Veins. With Two-Door Cinema Club and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 5 at Revolution, 100 SW 3rd Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $33.75 with fees. Click here.
