Everything You Need to Know About Indie Pop Band The Aces

If you're not already obsessed with The Aces and their bold brand of shimmery indie pop, ready yourself, because the band is about to explode in a big way.

Their 2018 album When My Heart Felt Volcanic first put them on the map, leading to a tour with 5 Seconds of Summer before selling out their own U.S. headline tour, and 2022 is gearing up to be even bigger for them. Last month, they dropped their new track "Girls Make Me Wanna Die," an all-too-relatable vibrant, summery ode to crushing hard and unrequited love, and we haven't stopped listening to it since. They're also totally crush-worthy themselves, and here's everything we learned about them as our latest Woman Crush Wednesdays.
