In 2015, Sherbrooke, Quebec's Orange O'Clock won Searchlight, taking the title of Canada's best new artist over more than 3,000 other entrants. Their song "Can't Fight the Feeling" had our judges making comparisons to Duran Duran and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. So how did they put all that gear they won to work? Now we know.
The trio is back in the studio working on its second album, and its hook-infested brand of spiky pop is better than ever. Check out the band's new single, "Get it On," below. Thoroughly danceable and shamelessly upbeat, it's a great mood-lightener to put on while you wait for warmer weather — or Orange O'Clock's second album, which is set for a fall 2017 release.
Listen to the 2015 Searchlight winner's new track.
