So last year Huntington Beach, CA’s Over It released a feel-good pop-punk album called Silverstrand. Without even looking at their bio, I would have guessed that the band was from some sunny place near the the California coast (which they are). I mean, I can almost hear the surf and smell the salty ocean breeze here in Chicago just by putting the CD in.
They aren’t breaking any new ground, but sometimes
you I just need a little fun melodic pop-punk (just nod and say “yes”). Even though Lake Michigan is right here, there aren’t any oceans for a thousand miles in any direction. This is a perfect pick-me-up when you long for palm trees and beaches. It’s purty catchy too, so beware. Silverstrand is out now on Lobster Records, and their new album Step Outside Yourself will hit stores August 29th on Virgin Records. RIYL: Yellowcard, radio-ready California pop-punk, etc…
