Neighborhood: Wicker Park
Sound: Spot-on indie pop with EDM elements that singer/multi-instrumentalist Kyle Mann (who lives in Elmhurst) describes as a mix of Cut Copy and Hall and Oates.
Influences: Twin Shadow, Beach Boys, New Order, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, James Blake, MGMT
Live show: The electronic sound on record becomes more of a raw, powerful rock show, Mann says, saying many people say Dozens (whose three members are all in their mid-20s and all sing) sounds bigger than a trio on stage.
