    The Tropics

    Five-piece indie-power-pop outfit The Tropics hit you like a storm and stay buzzing in your head long after the music stops. Led by radiant singer Claire George, they command attention with a slew of vital elements. Hard cymbal crashes, big basslines and perfectly placed solos—it’s the kind of music that makes you want to not just dance, but move uncontrollably every-which-way.

    Their visual components are also on-point, like the video for “Fireproof,” (directed by fellow-SFer, Frank Door) which is a spot-on recreation of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch’s “Good Vibrations.”
