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.
