SUNDRESSED
SUNDRESSED
Life is all about transitions, the desire to get from who you are to who you want to be. Just like the people who comprise them, every band is on a journey to find an identity and become comfortable in it’s own skin. For Phoenix, Arizona indie punks, Sundressed, these changes are the foundation of their new EP, The Same Condition.

After a string of releases dabbling in different sounds, Sundressed began to truly find their unique voice on their early 2015 EP, Dig Up A Miracle. Now with the release of The Same Condition, the band continue to deliver on the promise of their earlier work, creating endearingly honest melodic punk mixed with shades of indie rock, and massive hooks to spare.

Sonically, Sundressed excel at writing soaring harmonies and ear warm choruses, but lyrically, The Same Condition touches on darker territory. Heartbreak, depression, and toxic relationships are commonplace in alternative music, but Sundressed singer/guitarist Trevor Hedges takes a unique approach, deftly balancing intensely personal stories with universally relatable truths. Hedges said of the EP, “being in recovery and having struggled with depression in the past always makes things harder, but these songs are my way of letting it out and realizing that you can get through just about anything without going down a dark path.”

Sundressed walk a line between youthful enthusiasm and adult thoughtfulness, energetic punk and quirky indie, harrowing desperation and uplifting hopefulness. On The Same Condition the band have embraced these dynamics, found solace in transition, and are well on their way to becoming who they want to be.

FOSSIL YOUTH
After battling the unattainable with the 2015 EP "Intertwined With You", Fossil Youth are back and at it again with their new full length "A Glimpse Of Self Joy". AGOSJ not only works well as individual songs but, also tells one cohesive story that takes you on a journey from the opening chords of the contagious sing along "Watercolor Daydream" to the final ring out of the epic closer "Linger In My Head", where singer/guitarist Scottie Noonan laments over and over again, “You don’t need me at all”.

Noonan attacks the initial roadblocks, relapses, fond recollections, reminiscing and ultimately, the final resolution of a toxic relationship. Throughout the album, there is consistency in storytelling, that when listened to in sequential order, will bring a sense of apathy to the listener. Personal yet still universal, AGOSJ brings urgency in its’ songwriting. Noonan persists, “Although you know you shouldn't, you're replaying the best memories you have in the back of your head.”

For the recording of the album, Fossil Youth tapped producer Jay Maas (Citizen, The Menzingers, Somos) and headed to Boston, MA. You can hear hints of the laidback groove of Turnover melding with the quiet/loud dynamics of Balance & Composure. Songs like "Minco" & "Sitting In A Spinning Room" showcase the bands penchant for slowing things down and compelling the listener to firmly grasp every melody, while songs like "Forest Eyes" and "Late Night Swim" hit you right in the face and force you to bop your head with the beat.

A Glimpse Of Self Joy will be released November 4th on 12”/CD/CS/Digital via Take This To Heart Records. Catch Fossil Youth on tour this fall all across the USA.
