Shut Up and Dance formed last fall and within months they'd built buzz around their insanely catchy dance-pop. SUAD wasted little time recording their self-titled EP and touring the Southeast. "We were also able to perform at some awesome events," says vocalist Shauna Stallings. "We played the Red Gorilla Music Festival in Austin, Texas, and a main stage at this year's Florida Music Festival (in Orlando)."
WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW 'EM: If your friends are giving you too much crap about your weakness for Pink, Shut Up and Dance are the legit alternative. "Our songs range from dance tunes to rock ballads and everything in between," says Stallings. And while there's a glossy veneer to SUAD, there's also an underlying edge you'll be able to witness for yourself when the band embark on their national tour once they release their upcoming full-length.
