Although they've been playing the LA music scene for nearly two years and released an eponymous EP, Army Navy are probably most recognized for being featured on Fox's hit show, the OC. They also have a strong fan base in Seattle, thanks to KEXP. With influences ranging from British pop to Pacific Northwest post-grunge, Army Navy strikes that enviable balance of being both instantly familiar and unique. This particular editor thinks (or at least hopes) the band is on the verge of breaking... so check them out locally while you can. You'll have bragging rights later.

Army Navy are: Justin Kennedy (vocals, rhythm guitar), Ben Gaffin (bass), Louie Schultz (keyboards, lead guitar and backup vocals) and Josh Zetumer (drums).
