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.

THE BREAKING PATTERN
THE BREAKING PATTERN
Emerging from the growing valley music scene; The Breaking Pattern finds a balance between melodic, acoustic driven ambiance and an intensity derived from today’s modern indie rock. Fueled by flowery, introspective lyrics, the music creates an excitingly imaginative, atmospheric pop genre.
THE DEADBEAT COUSINS
THE DEADBEAT COUSINS
After years of playing with different bands and trying all different genres, Mat Shaker had discovered his love for Blues music. In September of 2016 he decided to form a new project to focus solely on the more "Blues based" songs he had written.

When the idea of a new band was realized, Mat immediately went to his Cousin Braden Mckinnon who he has been playing music with for years. The two began playing and it was immediately apparent that they were onto something.

They then decided to ask their long time friend Randy Day who has played in many bands with Mat over the years if he would be interested in joining the group. Randy's musical knowledge and skills solidified the groups sound and made him the 3rd member. Something was still missing and it wasn't until they added their 4th and final member, Jaren Soelberg (who has played in many bands throughout the years) that their lineup felt complete.

The band has been able to lock down a sound of their own that gives a Blues Rock feel with their wide variety of songwriting skills and catchy tunes that will have everyone singing along. With heavy influences from other artists such as The Black Keys, Gary Clark Jr., and The Shouting Matching they are sure to be a staple in this genre and provide music that all will enjoy.
