There was Gene Pitney in Rockville. There were the Five Satins in New Haven. There were The Wildweeds in Windsor. There are a few other examples of bands and artists who were first heard right around here in Connecticut and then landed on the national charts. Our friend Grayson Hugh did it for a while.
There have been lots of great bands from here that, for want of the right kind of big break, never made it big. And there have been lots of major artists born here, raised here or temporarily making their homes here.
But unless I'm missing somebody, it's been a while since a Connecticut band did what we think The McLovins might do. They're young: 18, 18 and 17, and they're hilariously non-badass.
Two of the three wear glasses and look like -- well, they look like the guy from "Superbad
." But they're hugely talented, and they've had just enough of the right kind of luck so that, in the world of jam bands, they really might be the next big thing.
