SPB premiere: Dominic by Sunstroke

SPB premiere: Dominic by Sunstroke

Sunstroke - Second Floor/Seven

We’re excited to be sharing a new track from Philadelphia’s Sunstroke today, titled “Dominic.”

The new song is off their forthcoming new LP, Second Floor/Seven, which releases on Oct. 5.

Following the example of all good bands, their formation is the story of friends deciding to write music together. Their sound captures from a string of influences, notably the DC scene, but with subtle traces that range from ‘80s Brit-pop to shoegaze and The Replacements. Rather than blather on about Scene Point Blank's personal interpretation of the art, take a listen here:

The record is available for pre-order from CoinToss Records and NewMoralityZine.

SPB exclusive: Keepers self-titled stream

SPB exclusive: Keepers self-titled stream

Scene Point Blank is hyped to be sharing a new full-length by San Diego’s Keepers.

The noise-punk trip formed four years ago and released their first 7” in 2015. On Oct. 19 they’ll unveil their self-titled full-length to the world courtesy of Volar Records, available on chrome vinyl. Listen to the 12 song record below.

The band is comprised of Elliott Moeller (guitar/vocals), Kevin Highland (bass), and Richie Lauridsen (drums). In addition to the new long-player, the label is also offering a limited chrome repress of 2015’s Blasé 7”.
