Candy Hearts
Candy Hearts

We've seen lots of bands lately that cross over between punk (or pop punk) and indie scenes, and Brooklyn's Candy Hearts is one of those with a crossover audience. Their most recent release, The Best Ways to Disappear EP, came out last year via Bridge 9 Records and Violently Happy Records, and they have a full length in the works for this year. The EP is six tracks of charming lyrical pop punk that's sugary and clean around the edges, but frontwoman Mariel Loveland has attitude and is a very human songwriter. You can stream one of those tracks, "Bad Idea," at the bottom of this post.

Candy Hearts last played NYC in December when they were on tour with New Found Glory (whose guitarist Chad Gilbert produced the Candy Hearts EP and runs Violently Happy Records) but if seeing them with NFG isn't your thing, you might rather catch them at a small, sweaty show with other local DIY punk bands. They'll do just that when they headline a Hurricane Sandy benefit in Brooklyn on January 26 at The Grand Victory (245 Grand St) with Banquets, Model Home, Up For Nothing, and Sad and French. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Candy Hearts recently filmed a live acoustic video of "Miles & Interstates" for Property of Zack. You can watch that video and stream "Bad Idea" below...

I'm thinking crossover means neither one really wants them.

I would love to just take a piss on the shit talkers on here. I would just piss on them and they'd stand there and do absolutely nothing.

Candy hearts is awesome... People keep hating, you'll be living in your parents basements, staring at a computer screen all day while they're out there living the dream, and they deserve it- they rock!

I dont think a single person is interested in any of those shitty bands. WOW. Terrible. I'd be more excited for Creed to play the waterfront.

I hope talking so much shit about a great band made up of great people make you assholes feel good at night.

This band isn't my sort of thing, but some of these comments are ridiculous. You geeks should be ashamed. Step out from behind the computer and grow some balls.
