AN UPBEAT, COASTAL VIBE FOR THE INCOMING SUMMER SEASON, ALMOST MONDAY COMES BACK WITH A FRESH TAKE ON THE ALT-POP STYLINGS THAT ARE GAINING MOMENTUM AND POPULARITY THROUGH THE INDUSTRY. THE THREE-PIECE BAND’S NEW TRACK, “SUNBURN,” BALANCES THE ENERGETIC EMOTION WITH SIMPLE MELODIES THAT CONFIRM EASY LISTENING. THE SAN DIEGO NATIVE BAND IS MADE UP OF DAWSON DAUGHERTY, COLE CLISBY, AND LUKE FABRY. PULLING FROM THOSE CALIFORNIA ROOTS, ALMOST MONDAYS CONSISTENTLY ENTERTAINS SURF, SOFT ROCK, AND POP INFLUENCES IN THEIR CASUALLY UPLIFTING SOUND. 

ALMOST MONDAY HAS BEEN ON THE RUN FOR THE MAJORITY OF THIS YEAR, HEADLINING VENUES, PERFORMING AT FESTIVALS, AND EVEN OPENING FOR JOYWAVE ON THEIR U.S. TOUR. THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FIND THEMSELVES ON STAGE FOR LIVE EVENTS, INCLUDING APPEARING ON THE LINEUP FOR GOVERNOR’S BALL AND WONDERBUS FESTIVAL. 

THE SINGLE, “SUNBURN,” EMPLOYS BACKGROUND FUNK TO MAKE IT THE IDEAL FESTIVAL TUNE. WITH THE EFFORTLESSLY COOL MUSIC, THE LYRICS SURPRISE AS THEY ARE MORE ASSOCIATED WITH THE HEARTBREAK OVER A SUMMER FLING, RATHER THAN LASTING LOVE. THE CHORUS IS SUNG AS, “THE DAYS WERE TEMPORARY / BUT YOU’LL ALWAYS BE THAT SUNBURN ON ME / AN ICE COLD SHOWER CAN’T HELP, BABY / ‘CAUSE YOU’LL ALWAYS BE THAT SUNBURN ON ME.” THE METAPHORICAL FOUNDATION IS PLAYFUL AND CREATIVE, ACCURATELY SUMMARIZING THE PURPOSE OF THE MESSAGE.

“SUNBURN” IS A CONTENDER FOR THE SONG OF THE SUMMER, ENERGIZING EACH LISTENER AS THEY ROLL THE WINDOWS DOWN AND TURN THE VOLUME UP.
