SUNDRESSED – “Good As You” video

1 min read

Phoenix, Arizona indie punks, SUNDRESSED, have teamed with Taco Bell’s Feed The Beat to premiere their new music video for “Good As You” the massively catchy opening track from their new EP, The Same Condition.

Inspired by the movie Clerks, and the often challenging world of service industry employment, the video is an endearing companion to Sundressed‘s brand of indie-tinged, melody-heavy punk. Feed The Beat accurately notes the band’s merits, saying, “When listening to the songs on that new EP, we were reminded of what we loved about the band from the start – honest, raw, emotions, huge sing-a-long moments, and catchy as heck guitar riffs.”

Life is all about transitions, the desire to get from who you are to who you want to be. Just like the people who comprise them, every band is on a journey to find an identity and become comfortable in it’s own skin. For Phoenix, Arizona indie punks, Sundressed, these changes are the foundation of their new EP, The Same Condition.

After a string of releases dabbling in different sounds, Sundressed began to truly find their unique voice on their early 2015 EP, Dig Up A Miracle. Now with the release of The Same Condition, the band continue to deliver on the promise of their earlier work, creating endearingly honest melodic punk mixed with shades of indie rock, and massive hooks to spare.

Sonically, Sundressed excel at writing soaring harmonies and ear worm choruses, but lyrically, The Same Condition touches on darker territory. Heartbreak, depression, and toxic relationships are commonplace in alternative music, but Sundressedsinger/guitarist Trevor Hedges takes a unique approach, deftly balancing intensely personal stories with universally relatable truths. Hedges said of the EP, “being in recovery and having struggled with depression in the past always makes things harder, but these songs are my way of letting it out and realizing that you can get through just about anything without going down a dark path.”

Sundressed walk a line between youthful enthusiasm and adult thoughtfulness, energetic punk and quirky indie, harrowing desperation and uplifting hopefulness. OnThe Same Condition the band have embraced these dynamics, found solace in transition, and are well on their way to becoming who they want to be.
