Daisyhead, made up of Chiarizzio, Michael Roe (vocals/guitar), Curtis Durard (guitar) and Chad Burroughs (drums), formed in 2012 and has quickly become one of the most promising new bands in the emo/alternative rock revival scene. The band's sound takes listeners back to the heyday of the 90's post-hardcore/alternative rock and early 2000's era of Revelation Records while injecting their own unique edge and style. Following the recent release of their debut EP, I Couldn't Face You, via Spartan Records, word of the band has spread like wildfire and their audience continues to grow with each listen and live show.
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.
