Their website proudly proclaims, “Four girls about to take over the world”, and with their refreshing mix of beauty and pop/rock prowess, The Aces just might. Hailing from Utah, the four-piece released their single “Stuck” last summer. Combining modern indie rock with elements of 80’s dance pop, the song makes you want to go on a long drive with the top down. It would feel just as natural to see them billed with Two Door Cinema Club as it would to see them open for the likes of Cindy Lauper. Front woman Cristal Ramirez wales with emotional confusion over fun guitar licks and a driving bass line that might just lead you to the dance floor.
These girls have something to say though. “Too little, too late, I know that’s what you’re gonna say. I’m stuck babe. Stuck with nowhere to go.” The juxtaposition of emotional lyrics over upbeat dance music only adds to the song’s charm. “Stuck” is the lead single on The Aces debut EP, which is supposed to release sometime this summer. It will be great to hear what they have come up with, but for now, enjoy their debut single here.
