The hooks come from all directions in a Noises 10 song, but it's Jason Scavone's impassioned vocals that make the band impossible to ignore.

Hailing from Charlotte, N.C., the Noises 10 gradually evolved from a tamer, more keyboard-anchored project to a full-on power-pop act. The irresistible keyboard melodies are still there but are now dressed with electronic blips and brisk guitars. Last year's self-released full-length, "There's an Elephant in the Room," attracted the attention of more than one major label, Scavone says, adding that reps from Capitol and Downtown Records have been in touch. The quartet—all its members are in their mid-20s—has already started work on a new album.

"Things are just getting started," Scavone says. "We're looking to tour, and we're looking to get picked up by a label, but this is all new to us."
