MisterWives, Bleachers play free show at KC Live Block on Friday

Like any responsible music listener, I’m often skeptical of new pop-rock outfits, particularly young ones prone to trendy buzzword lyrics and synthed-up tracks. Still, there’s something about New York’s MisterWives that defies you not to just go with it.

A big part of that something is lead singer Mandy Lee, a 21-year-old with robust lungs and a way with ballads (especially “Lullaby,” the group’s lead single). Other tracks from the MisterWives’ debut EP, Reflections, skew toward overproduced, radio-hopeful pop candy. But if the band’s biggest mistake is dreaming big, we can forgive. Friday’s show is free, and fellow New York act Bleachers opens.
