Hot Chelle Rae – Whatever

This foursome from Nashville had a huge hit over the summer with their song “Tonight, Tonight”.  The pop-rock song was everywhere over the summer and the video starring the band’s guitarist Nash Overstreet’s brother Chord Overstreet (from Glee) is hilarious. They obviously have figured out what worked for them and have continued down the road paved with pop music. Whatever is filled with pop music ditties. This without inducing any cheesy feelings (in me, anyways) is definitely their breakout album.  They have been together since 2005 and released their debut album in 2009 entitled Lovesick Electric, a dance-rock album. Second album is more pop than dance rock. The melodies are fun, the musicianship is above average and the harmonies tight. Perfect album to put on during outdoor BBQ parties or while driving in your car with the windows down. Every song will have you dancing to the beat. Plus there’s the added bonus of a duet with Demi Lovato. Pure pop fanatic’s wet dream.
