Life is all about transitions, the desire to get from who you are to who you want to be. Just like the people who comprise them, every band is on a journey to find an identity and become comfortable in it’s own skin. For Phoenix, Arizona indie punks, Sundressed, these changes are the foundation of their new EP, The Same Condition.
After a string of releases dabbling in different sounds, Sundressed began to truly find their unique voice on their early 2015 EP, Dig Up A Miracle. Now with the release of The Same Condition, the band continue to deliver on the promise of their earlier work, creating endearingly honest melodic punk mixed with shades of indie rock, and massive hooks to spare.
Sonically, Sundressed excel at writing soaring harmonies and ear warm choruses, but lyrically, The Same Condition touches on darker territory. Heartbreak, depression, and toxic relationships are commonplace in alternative music, but Sundressed singer/guitarist Trevor Hedges takes a unique approach, deftly balancing intensely personal stories with universally relatable truths. Hedges said of the EP, “being in recovery and having struggled with depression in the past always makes things harder, but these songs are my way of letting it out and realizing that you can get through just about anything without going down a dark path.”
Sundressed walk a line between youthful enthusiasm and adult thoughtfulness, energetic punk and quirky indie, harrowing desperation and uplifting hopefulness. On The Same Condition the band have embraced these dynamics, found solace in transition, and are well on their way to becoming who they want to be.

Raised in the jungles of Indonesia by missionary parents, singer Avery Robitaille was 18 when she moved herself to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. While performing at an open mic in Orange County, California, she met the remaining members of Fever Joy, Sean Baker and Kevin Holm.
Their debut single ‘Shots’ was produced by Adam Castilla of The Colourist, mastered by Joe LaPorta (Imagine Dragons, The Weeknd) followed by promos with photographer John Tsiavis (Rolling Stone Magazine). After being offered a co-headline spot at Whiskey a Go Go in Hollywood and catching the attention of labels, publishers and press outlets, Fever Joy went back into the studio to record their second single ‘R.Y.W.B.’ which released with critical success.
Fever Joy is currently working on their first full length EP, and plans to release U.S. tour and festival dates this year.
