Formed in New York City but based in Los Angeles, indie pop duo the Score fashion upbeat, hook-driven tunes reminiscent of Fun. and Walk the Moon. Eddie Anthony, a self-taught guitarist from Orange County, California and Edan Dover, a producer and formally trained jazz pianist from New York, began their partnership as a songwriting team in New York City with the intention of writing for others. Motivated by the desire to have their accumulating work reach an audience, they eventually began performing their songs at the City's Rockwood Music Hall as the Score. Feeling a momentum in the Los Angeles music scene, they relocated; the first song they wrote on the West Coast, the exuberant, handclap-branded "Oh My Love" was self-released in January 2015 via online music sharing site SoundCloud. The tune quickly accrued a seven-figure play count, mostly from the U.K., where it topped streaming charts and hit the singles chart. It was also swiftly licensed for multiple high-profile commercials for, among others, Starbucks and U.K. retailer ASDA. Just six months after the song was released, the duo signed a record deal with Republic Records. Their debut EP, Where Do You Run, arrived in September 2015. Two more EPs, Unstoppable and Myths & Legends, arrived in 2016 and 2017, respectively. In August 2017, they delivered another EP called Stripped which featured acoustic renderings of tracks from their two previous offerings. A month later, "Never Going Back," the lead single from their forthcoming debut album, Atlas, was released. ~ Marcy Donelson
