The 502s


The 502s are a rambunctious indie folk band from Maitland, Florida who approached 2021 with a thoughtful and consistent plan to release a new song every 6-8 weeks building to an album. The approach paid off when their July single, “Just A Little While”, experienced a viral TikTok moment in late 2021.
