Philadelphia based quartet Moonroof have released their new single 'Sweatshirt', a song with a nod to pop-rock of the early 2000's. This is the band's third single since signing with Free Dive Records late last year.
Moonroof is made up of Dave Kim (vocals), Danny Walsh (guitar), Dan Rendine (drums) and Kevin Randolph (bass). About this new single, Dave Kim says: “Sweatshirt is about how when people leave each other behind, they might leave behind something with sentimental value or something random. Whatever it is, it's the last thing in your life that reminds you of them. Sometimes it's hard to really let go all the way."
The track was recorded by Vic Antonio at Little Brother Audio and mixed and mastered by Tyler Ripley. The sound is crisp - synths and guitar combine effortlessly to produce a perfect foundation for the killer, anthemic chorus.
Having played shows with The Lumineers and Death Cab For Cutie, Moonroof are also a band with a popular following, having amassed over two million streams on Spotify alone.
Kim: “Sweatshirt really shows the direction Moonroof is leaning towards. While we still love indie pop, we also value the genre pop rock as well… the song shows off a tasteful and melodic verse with a catchy, angsty hook. The verse catches one's attention while the hook draws one in to scream along,”
The band are going full steam ahead this year and they are currently working on an EP release. 'Sweatshirt' is arguably Moonroof's best release to date and the track is a welcome addition to their growing discography.
'Sweatshirt' is out now on all major digital platforms. The track can also be listened to below via the embedded streaming link.
