Music for Darker Days
Lucca Swain, Social Media Director • January 9, 2023

Pavement, Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain Pavement is one of the most beloved indie bands of all time, yet among the younger generation, they are practically unknown. The band had an unexpected resurgence in 2020, though, as “Harness Your Hopes,” a random B-side off of another one of their albums, blew up on TikTok.

Lucca Swain, Social Media Director • October 1, 2022
