After releasing a handful of singles and EPs over the past few years, Sundressed are preparing to release their sophomore album, titled “Home Remedy.”
The album begins with its title track and lead single, “Home Remedy,” a very catchy and memorable track filled with energy that gives listeners a glimpse into what they can expect on the rest of the record. “No Thanks” combines the pop punk and punk influences within this band’s sound very well, “The Facts” allows the bass to shine as it accompanies the vocals before the drums and guitars kick in, leading up to its huge chorus, and both of these tracks are also very energetic.
“Explode! (Into Pieces)” and “Your Frequency” are pretty upbeat as well, and bring some very memorable melodies and instrumentals all throughout, the acoustically driven “Sensitive Motherfcker” shows off the vocals really well, and the bonus track “Beyond Repair” is catchy and upbeat right off the bat, with one of the biggest and most memorable choruses on this whole record.
The remaining tracks are moreso on the slower side in regards to tempo, such as “Is This A Drug?,” a darker track that really showcases the emo influences within this band’s sound with harder-hitting instrumentation and a solid vocal performance in the chorus and the second verse that follows it, and the second single “Oh Please,” which has one of the catchiest choruses and one of the most emotional and overall best vocal performances on the whole record. “Size Of My Heart,” another single, also showcases the band’s emo influences quite a bit, and the vocals really stand out all throughout the song as they deliver catchy melodies, and “Cash Out” provides some catchy melodies as well, accompanied by equally as catchy guitar riffs.
“Home Remedy” brings a great fusion of pop-punk and emo influences and showcases that very well through some strong performances that contain some catchy melodies and instrumentals, and it’s an excellent new LP from Sundressed.
"HOME REMEDY" WILL BE RELEASED TOMORROW, SEPTEMBER 18TH, 2020. YOU CAN LISTEN TO THE LATEST SINGLE "SIZE OF MY HEART" HERE:
