The Weeknd: House Of Balloons

The man of the minute, you may remember The Weeknd in Ariana Grande’s latest single Love Me Harder, but let’s back track a bit to 2011 and enjoy the artist’s debut project titled House Of Balloons.

Once in a while , you come across a band that you just know has that special sound that could make it big if given the right amount of exposure. Popcult is one such band. This four piece crew is comprised of Justin Renaud, Tyler Venter, Alex Halvorson and Brandon Proff. Discreetly titled, 2011, this is the first EP for the group and they're offering it for free in exchange for an email address. It's a pretty good deal since you get a great set of polished indie pop rock tracks that's charming and easy to listen to.
