The men of The #1s do not mince words: They are crushed out, and they would like to tell you all about it. Hard. The Dublin band just released its self-titled debut, and it’s one of the strongest power-pop albums of the decade to date—jangling, swooning, and obnoxiously catchy all at once. The album’s lead track, “Heartsmash,” is exactly what it purports to be: an elixir of hormones and Valentine’s candy, chugged down with a chaser of The Undertones and The Exploding Hearts. The punchy video for ”Heartsmash” is being debuted here. May we suggest a breastplate?

The #1s is available now via Deranged Records.
