The Portland, OR band Waterfronts have joined together with the band Substitute Dad to create a split EP titled ‘Split-Splitley’ that was released today. The four-track EP features two Waterfronts and two Substitute Dad songs. Waterfronts’ songs are “Homecoming” and “Waiting List” that you can listen to below and you can click here to listen to Substitute Dad’s songs fron the EP (the bands’ songs are not linked together).
Tonight, the two bands along with the band The Kelevras put on a free release show for the public to celebrate the new EP. The Kelevras played first, kicking off the night. Substitute Dad was second, and I was amazed. A talented group of people alongside Waterfronts put on a terrific show. Waterfronts was last and they absolutely killed it! The PDX band is made up of five very musically gifted individuals who have come together to create a wonderful piece of art, music. Songs from the new EP were played as well as their single “Headaches.” Tonight was definitely unforgettable.
Make sure to follow Waterfronts on Spotify to be up-to-date with their future releases!
ICYMI, Mayday Parade has recently released their newest album ‘Sunnyland.’ The 13-track album is made up of 49 minutes of wonderful music. Whether it’s the instrumental parts or the lyrics, you will get hooked. I finally got the time to listen to it in full from the first song to the last in order. I absolutely loved it! Here are my thoughts on it:
First of all, the very first track, “Never Sure,” begins pretty fast and hard. I really like the different sounds between the verses, chorus, and bridge. Yes, most songs have different sounds within those parts, but this one is so different and unique. “Piece Of Your Heart” starts off pretty mellow but it does have an upbeat tempo to it. If you’re looking for an acoustic song or two, they have “Take My Breath Away” and “Where You Are,” both great tunes.
Overall I really enjoyed listening to this album. It has different sounds and melodies all throughout. Mayday Parade has not left their roots, but they also added new things to their songs, making them different than their older stuff. However, there is a similarity to the songs. Take a listen to it below and comment what you think of the album. Happy listening!
