“I love music out in Phoenix – there’s a lot of opportunity and you can really make a difference.”
Sundressed is an emotive indie rock band based in Tempe, Arizona, that features band members Trevor, Garrett, and Forest and friends. Their sound is a modern resurgence of 90s pop-punk bands. The group distinguishes themselves by their ability to combine poppy melodies with deeply personal narrative lyrics that appeal to many. The group cites heartbreak, toxic relationships, struggles with depression, and the difficulties of life’s transition periods among its chief inspiration, but they frame the lyrics in a comprehensive way so that the impact can be understood by many. Additionally, while the lyrics may reflect a kind of inner turmoil, the accompanying music is upbeat and with heavy punk and alternative rock influences.
