Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, the Unlikely Candidates are an indie rock band initially formed as an acoustic duo by childhood friends Kyle Morris and Cole Male in 2008.
Eventually expanding the lineup to include guitarist Brenton Carney, bassist Jared Hornbeek, and drummer Kevin Goddard, the band was also able to expand its sound in bigger, more sweeping directions. In 2013, the Unlikely Candidates signed on with major-label Atlantic and released their debut EP, Follow My Feet. In early 2016, the band returned with a hooky new single in "Your Love Could Start a War," which made a strong showing on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart. Two new releases arrived from the band in 2017: the hook-laden Bed of Liars EP and the Danger to Myself EP. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
