‘still feel.’ was never supposed to be a 70s-inspired, electro-halftime-chorus jam complete with a highly-choreographed music video. Nay, the track had very humble beginnings; born from a 50 song project three years ago i had challenged myself to in hopes of improving my skill as a songwriter. Brett and I had back to back studio time around then so we ended up just combining our times and writing many of those 50 songs together; J Tyler would end up joining the posse later and contributing instrumentally to those songs which became the foundation of half•alive. ‘still feel.’ was song #11 on that 50 song list, although back then it had a different title and belonged to a different genre entirely. The song sat comfortably in an 8×11.5 back leather inch notebook for quite some time before it was ready to see the world. Now look at it; in its prime, and shakin’ its booty like its 1979.
Sure Sure is an art pop band from the Eastside of Los Angeles, California. The highly prolific group has been releasing music since 2014 and has already amassed over 30 million combined streams. In addition to receiving praise for their songwriting and production skills, Sure Sure has played over 150 shows in the past two years, sharing the stage with artists such as Young The Giant, Hippo Campus, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise.
Chris, Charlie, Kevin, and Mike self-produce all their music in their house-turned-studio – a myriad of instruments positioned throughout the attic, with cables snaking down the walls to the recording console in the producer’s bedroom. Sure Sure’s recordings and infectious live show have quickly solidified them as one of the most exciting up and coming bands out of Southern California.
Mike describes the bands sound as a mix between Steely Dan and the Talking Heads, “we take inspiration from The Beatles, D’Angelo, and Feist among other artists that I can’t remember right now.”
The band has achieved multiple number ones on the Hype Machine charts and gained praise from Grizzly Bear, Rostam of Vampire Weekend, and other staples in the indie music community. Summer 2019 found the band releasing a new EP What’s It Like?, playing a select set of dates, and locking the door to their house to record new music.
