WHAT IT IS: You only have to spin the quartet’s slinky, anthem-ready debut, “Stuck,” once to grasp their appeal. Bridging the gap between current acts like The 1975 and MUNA with The Bangles and The Go-Go’s, The Aces is made up of sisters Cristal (lead vocals/guitar) and drummer Alisa Ramirez, as well as guitarist Katie Henderson and bassist McKenna Petty. “Stuck” is the first taste of their stellar debut EP, I Don’t Like Being Honest—a collection that exhibits a confidence and polish that belies their young years. Ultimately, the set captures who they are right now, highlighting formative moments as they careen from their teens to adulthood, and yet like all the best pop songs, these tunes transcend specifics to be applicable to all.
