One of the coolest things about writing for ModCloth is being approached by fellow creatives looking to connect. In fact, just last week the blog team received an email from Diana Meehan of the LA-based indie pop band Sweater Girls, and boy, did we fall head-over-heels for both their style and sound!

Okay, okay, so they’re not all girls despite their way-cute name, but we won’t hold that against them. They just recorded a cover song for the Pop! For Kids Blog Project, which you can listen to below. Trust us, this jam will invite listeners of all ages–male or female–to tap their toes!

Keep an ear out for their debut LP set to release in May, and let us know what you’ve been listening to lately by commenting below. Who knows — you just may get a reply from one of the band members!

    This is the first time I have ever heard of Sweater Girls! Its great! I googled it to here more. If and when you guys go on tour, you should try and schedule a Las Vegas show, we are really lacking in good indie music and good shows. I love that ModCloth features bands here not only does it help the band gather a following, but it also helps us discover new music which is one of my favorite things!

      Hey Julia–we should definitely do a Las Vegas show! We’ll have a lot more show dates when the album comes out. Oddly enough, I’ve never been to Vegas. Thanks!!

      Thanks, Sheetal! All of your support is really sort of magical for us ModPeeps – seriously! I’m sure you’re giving the Sweater Girls goosebumps, too!
