Who: Chicago’s Cleveland Avenue got going in 2017 and since then it’s been one solid pop punk tune after the other. Their latest single is just one of the many ways they’ll snag the spotlight this year—and with a sound like this, they deserve it.
What: Hear the new track “Untaken”.
Why: “Untaken” recreates the exhilaration of finding your first favorite tune. It might be the opening guitar that seeps into your bones, the epic break of the chorus, or the band’s unfiltered passion for music. Whatever it is, it’s clear Cleveland Avenue has stumbled across something special in their sound. While we wait to see where it takes them, we’ll keep coming back to the catchy melody of “Untaken”.
Who: In true SoCal style, Taken Days delivers their own spin on pop punk music. The band’s first full length album is out on March 19th. Every Second… will show us what they’ve been working on since 2018’s Ten More Miles EP. Until then, get a taste with their latest single.
What: Dig into “How’d It Come To This”.
Why: We want you to have a good day and there’s something about a pop punk tune that always puts a smile on our face—so allow us to introduce “How’d It Come To This”. Taken Days have taken a masterclass in the genre and the SoCal greats that have come before them. Their iconic “woah-ohs” and melodic guitars transport you to a Warped Tour crowd, all sunshine and crowd-surfing. By the time the tune wraps up, you’ll be psyched for the day ahead.
