Rise Rock n’ Shine: Card Reader + Some Sprouts

Alarm off. Music on.

It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…

Who: After ten years of playing music, guitarist/vocalist Tom Petito formed Card Reader. The band is only a couple of months into their career but their polished sound makes one thing clear: This is a band that knows what they’re doing.

What: Written after losing a close friend, “Sore Eyes” packs an emotional punch in every note.

Why: Card Reader reminds us that life is short on “Sore Eyes”. It doesn’t hurt that the emotionally charged track has the kind of beat you can replay for days. It’s old school emo-pop punk with Card Reader’s unique spin on it. And yeah, we’ll be in the crowd screaming along as soon as they can play a show.

“’Sore Eyes’ is our third single released in 2020. I wrote this song after I lost a close friend. The message is resounding: life is short, any day could be your last so don’t settle for less. Go after your dreams unapologetically. It’s our goal as a band to write music that inspires others to pursue their passion. We are using this song to introduce ourselves to the music world. It’s our goal to put our stamp on what being a band means. We don’t want to be just another pop-punk band. We want to be the first Card Reader.” – Tom Petito, guitarist/vocalist for Card Reader

Who: Slip into a summer daze with Some Sprouts. The indie/”slacker rock” band is bringing you new vibes to groove to from their home in Germany.

What: Need a quick pick me up? The bright indie track “Summer Daze” has an accompanying video that’s filled with fun colors and 90’s aesthetics.

Why: When there’s a montage in a movie and the protagonist is finally getting to a better place in life “Summer Daze” is the kind of song they play. There’s something light and airy about the tune, making the world seem brighter around you as you go about your day to day tasks.
