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.

PALM SPRINGS ETERNAL
PALM SPRINGS ETERNAL
Palm Springs Eternal is the latest emo revival act to rise from the Arizona music scene. The band, hailing from Phoenix, and not Palm Springs as the name may suggest, formed out of the ashes of members’ previous projects - coming together to create a sound that pays direct homage to all that came before. Most notably, Chuckie Duff’s former band Dear and the Headlights (Equal Vision) toured extensively including appearances made on major festivals like Lollapalooza, Warped Tour, and Coachella.

The lineup, composed of Duff, Charles Barth and Jesse Cole Ward, formed out of mutual fandom of each other’s previous musical endeavors. Their intent was to draw on their shared history in the genre and approach crafting songs and sound in a lean and straightforward way, cutting out anything that felt overthought or self-conscious.

Palm Springs Eternal released their first single “Father Time” on Friday December 15th 2017. The band recently wrapped up time in the studio working on their first ever EP (not yet released) with Bob Hoag at Flying Blanket Recording.
