Rise Rock n’ Shine: Until I Wake, The Maguas + We The Commas

Rock out while you wake up.

It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…

Who: We wouldn’t be surprised if Buffalo’s Until I Wake discovered the secret of time travel. The band boasts a polished sound and attention from major outlets across the industry… despite the fact that they’ve been together for less than a year.

What: The stadium filling single “Less Of Me”.

Why: Maybe we just haven’t been to a show in a long time, but we can almost see the light show for “Less Of Me”. The melodic elements of the song guarantee a huge crowd singalong while still being hardcore enough to inspire one hell of a mosh pit—oh yeah, we can’t wait to see this one live.

“‘Less Of Me’ is a song that shows our softer side… We recorded the video ourselves due to lockdown from covid-19. The lyrics are about giving up on a relationship that feels one sided, watching someone move on and not seem to care while you are left hurting.” – Cody Johnson, vocalist for Until I Wake

Who: You know Scranton, PA for your favorite sitcom. Now get to know it for your favorite emo rock quintet. The Maguas take inspiration from the bands that paved the way to craft a new sound you’ll love.

What: A pop punk tune loaded with all the emotion you love pop punk for. Meet “Will It Ever Be The Same?”.

Why: Jump in your car and roll down the windows, this song is your new bad day cure. You’ll be banging your head along to the hard hitting guitar, screaming along to the lyrics, and feeling the music in your chest as the beat rattles your windows. Just keep driving and just keep jamming—it’ll all turn out okay.

“’Will It Ever Be The Same’ is a reflection on the emotional journey of being in love while chasing your dreams. It’s our love letter to the selfless people in our lives who sacrificed so many precious moments to allow for us to reach higher and go further than ever before. It’s a thank you to those who simply believed in us and our music and continue to push us to become everything we may be too afraid to see. We worked hard with producer Nik Bruzzese (Man Overboard) at The Lumberyard Recording to make sure this song presented a heart-wrenching anthem that begs to listeners to reflect and ask: ‘Will It Ever Be The Same’?” – The Maguas

Who: We The Commas are a band of brothers that are here to bring music from days gone by to today’s pop tunes. The Southern California act makes surf alternative R&B influenced by the likes of Bob Marley and The Beach Boys.

What: We ALL deserve a trip to the beach… but because COVID-19 is a thing, We The Comma’s “Custom Made” is a good alternative.

Why: Fall in love with old school sounds on “Custom Made”. The song is a mental vacation. Whether you’re in the office or stuck in the house again, you’ll be transported to a sunny day on the beach, or maybe under a tree. Feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair for the song’s four minute duration and allow yourself to get away for awhile.

“Hello out there! We are We the Commas and we just released a new single ‘Custom Made.’ The song came about after a friend was talking about his custom made Stetson hat, while we were all chillin’ looking out at the ocean. We were jamming out and Cam quickly came up with the lyric ‘custom made for your love’ and that’s how the song was born.” – The Commas

“We each wrote individual parts to it but the song ended up extra personal for me because I wrote about meeting my girlfriend.” – Lenny

“‘Custom Made’ is my favorite song to sing out of all the tracks we’ve written so far.” – Cam

“I really love ‘Custom Made’ and the video was a lot of fun to make. I hope everyone finds their ‘Sherry’ and they feel like they’re ‘Custom Made’ for each other. We hope you all like it.” – Jordy
