The Morning Benders recently swapped their name to POP ETC
(for noble reasons
). Following that change, they've announced a 6/12 release of their forthcoming self-titled album. During the last album cycle, the band officially relocated from San Francisco to Brooklyn, and now more than ever, you can hear it in their sound. Frontman Chris Chu says that:
Over the last few years, I rediscovered music that I loved from when I was a kid: Boyz II Men, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper. Theres this whole slew of stuff that went over my head when I was a kid. At the time, I liked it because it made me happy and it sounded cool. Now, I think its really amazingly well-crafted music.
Seems pretty fitting that their name name would be POP ETC, with album art that would suggest a little bit of everything else, too. Here are two of the songs (on the mixtape the band released
) that are confirmed to appear on the album as well.
