The inevitable change of seasons is creeping into the forefront, with the calendar ready to turn to September, classes starting for teachers and students alike, and fantasy football drafts taking place nationwide. The days are getting noticeably shorter, and the mornings are covered in a blanket of cold and dew as I log running mileage through my neighborhood.
Those facts, however, are immaterial with the recent release of CRUISR’s new song, the title track to their upcoming EP, All Over. The Philadelphia-based outfit has expanded and contracted in the time since their self-titled, debut EP was released back in 2012. They’ve gone from being the solo project of Andy States to a full-fledged band, and with their recent signing to Vagrant Records, they’ve dropped the ‘e’ from their name as well, in deference to another artist utilizing the same moniker.
What hasn’t changed from then to now, however, is the band’s ability to craft sunshine-y pop, as evidenced by “All Over” – a song so infectious that it lingers in your head well past the song’s three minute running time. As Summer 2014 draws to a close, “All Over” is the perfect accompaniment to those remaining gasps of breath unfettered by obligation.
All Over will be available in its entirety on September 23, but if you want to own the song for yourself right now, you can pre-order the EP and get it instantly.
