Matt dials up members of a new band known as So Sure, which includes Brendan Kelly and Sean Kelly of A Fragile Tomorrow as well as drummer Kyle Polk.
So Sure can be described as dream pop, shoegaze, post punk, and influenced by alternative music of the 80s and 90s. Their debut, 5-song EP Caffeine Drip is available via NoiseTrade and is also being streamed on Paste Magazine. So Sure has chosen 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the ACLU to aid in its urgent advocacy efforts to demand racial justice and end police brutality.
The group shared with me in advance that My Bloody Valentine’s 1991 record “Loveless” had a strong influence on the band and their debut record. We’ll be weaving in their thoughts on “Loveless” in and out of our conversation, so enjoy a bit of a two-fer of albums today!
