When I’m stuck in bed all weekend with the flu, I want to listen to two things: classical music or feel-good music. After having my fill of Mendohlsson, Brahams, Mozart, Beethovan, Elgar, and Satie (my classical go-to’s), I decided to click on an indietastic advertisement on my Spotify account and try out some new music. The cover art looked interesting, at least. Here’s what I found: Act As If, a fairly new band from LA that’s about to make waves with its new EP, The Iron is Hot. Led by frontman Peter Verdell, the songs are catchy and infectious (the good kind!), just what I want to listen to.
