They dont dissapoint
Perfect summer music, even when it's not summer!
I dream of dream pop like this
This album has East Coast roots, but it’ll find it’s legs on the beaches of California. The guys of Cheerleader established a great rapport with the audience when I saw them open for the Wombats and left me impressed. I deem them to be a disciplined band with a chill vibe and songs that’ll be perfect for that summer playlist!
Formed in 2012 by friends Joe Haller and Chris Duran, Cheerleader is a Philadelphia-based indie quintet with a dreamy, haze-pop sound and a sunny disposition. After relocating from their native Connecticut, Haller and Duran began producing music together as a duo under the name Cheerleader, posting their mixes to SoundCloud. After earning some early accolades from NME and MTV based on their early demos, they expanded the band to a five-piece, enlisting bassist Paul Impellizeri, keyboardist Josh Pannepacker, and drummer Carl Bahner. In 2013, they signed with California-based indie Bright Antenna Records to release their debut EP, On Your Side. Their first full-length, The Sunshine of Your Youth, followed in the spring of 2015. ~ Timothy Monger
