Best New Band

White Life

No matter what tangential musical concept project local musician and songwriter Jonathan Ehrens decides to pursue—speed pop Art Department, lo-fi Repelican—the result is always delightfully original and overwhelmingly catchy. The newest incarnation of the Ehrens-fronted band, White Life, a five-member ensemble that released its debut self-titled album with Ehse Records earlier this year, is easily the most infectiously appealing, with synthy, ’80s-inspired dance jams, saxophone solos, and the added vocal stylings of Jonathan’s sister, Emily Ehrens. Heartfelt lyrics and elegantly structured tunes make for an album’s worth of instant hits, and the siblings’ natural stage presence turns their live performances into instant dance parties. In particular, “Time Is Wasting” and “I Want Love” scratch a nostalgic itch, feeling at first listen like you’ve always known them.
