Ah, summer. A time of sunglasses, tank tops, bright sun and warm days—a time of top-down, stereo-cranked, sing-a-long-fueled adventures and memory making.
Even if you’re old and grey, trapped in a cubicle somewhere all day and well into the night, even the notion of summer still bears those warm, intoxicating memories and concomitant sobering twinge of nostalgia. It’s a time of year that pretty much everyone can relate to—making it something that summer and Pennsylvania pop-punk outfit Send Request have in common. True enough, while the summer months are synonymous with angst-tinted, boisterous and bouncy pop-punk, Send Request aren’t simply a band built for the May-August block of the calendar. Taking splashy, energetic and enthusiastic energy and mixing it with stark, earnest emotion atop a canvas of creative, catchy instrumentation, the band blend elements from alternative rock to pop and beyond to create an infectious listening experience that brings out the sun-loving, drunk-on-nostalgia youngster in just about anyone.
