“Exuberant Pop” is one of the happier Soundcloud tags we’ve seen in a while, and, in the case of Born Ruffians, one of the more accurate. “Needle,” the first single from their forthcoming debut LP, is nothing if not “filled with or characterized by lively energy,” as my laptop’s dictionary defines “exuberant.” Check it out below if you feel like being in a better mood.

The Toronto band’s third LP, Birthmarks, will be out on April 16 on Paper Bag Records. “Needle” is available on iTunes, and they’ll be beginning a fairly extensive North American tour starting in March.
