The Chicago-based band is gearing up for the release of their debut album, Did You Get Better, on May 31 via Exploding In Sound.

Following the success of their lead single, the band now shares their second offering, ‘Universal.’ Showcasing a refined yet dynamic sound that reflects their growth and collaborative spirit, the track effortlessly blends power-pop, pop-grunge, and other DIY rock subgenres into one cohesive and captivating sonic experience. Featuring heavy riffs and occasional moments of restraint, the song delivers a powerful message about the ethical implications of competition and success.

The band explains:

“This one is all about climbing up onto your neighbor’s back to succeed. Most aspects of life are not a zero-sum game, but when they are, it feels ethically wrong to win.”

‘Universal’ is available now. Did You Get Better, will hit your favorite DSP on May 31 via Exploding In Sound.
