What Gives are a band from Chicago featuring some familiar faces: Andy Hendricks (Annabel), Joe Henderer (Elway), Delia Hornik (ex-Dowsing) and Marcus Nuccio (Pet Symmetry). They're gearing up to release their debut album, Feels Good, on April 21 via Skeletal Lightning (pre-order), and we're premiering the album's lead single "Something Real." It's a nice dose of crunchy power pop that should bring you right back to Blue Album-era Weezer. Dig in:


What Gives have no upcoming tour dates at the moment, but Dowsing do. They're doing a short tour with their Asian Man labelmates The Exquisites this April. That tour includes a Brooklyn show on April 25 at Silent Barn. Ticket info and more bands TBA. All dates here.
