New Track: "Throw Shade" - CRUISR

What better way is there to cut through that weekend to weekday turnaround than to throw on something that snaps your mind and body into place! CRUISR recently dropped “Throw Shade,” a track for all the haters out there. Currently set to embark on a run of tour dates, the group will return home on September 12 for an evening at the TLA with Cold Fronts and Made Violent.


CRUISR Go For It at JB's June 5

CRUISR headlines a three-pronged billing of local bands this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. The lineup, which also includes Tutlie and Suburban Living, shares the thread of easily lovable, movement-enticing music. The quartet of CRUISR serves up naturally positive bounce that bubbles over, pushed by a melodic core and sustained by a constant percussive pop and subtly sharp reinforcing guitar lines. Tutlie occupy the middle slot surrounding you in an intricately designed orchestra of sound that lifts one into the upper atmosphere, rather than weighing you down with their powerful vocal interplay. Wesley Bunch guides the heart-pumping emotive synth-pop vehicle of Suburban Living, jumpstarting your night while weaving in and out of the shadows with a combination of urgency and ease. Johnny Brenda’s 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Free Download: Daytrotter Session - CRUISR

Daytrotter just posted their session with Philly feel-good indie-pop crew CRUISR. The recording is made up of tracks from the band's EP All Over, which is a nice accompaniment with the weather that we are having today. You can stream and download it HERE (w/membership).

New Track: "Go For It" - CRUISR

“Go For It,” the latest single from CRUISR, is the type track that can really break the ice. With a loose infectious energy and a tightly compacted sandy groove, the song is a great way to shake off that chill and transition over to warmer weather. “Go ahead, now go for it.”


Locals Only w/CRUISR, Cold Fronts & Needle Points at The Barbary Jan. 15

CRUISR will finish the night off with their breezy, Cali-vibes indie pop. Their songs demonstrate a real comprehension of what makes the perfect pop hook. And don’t peace out after the show is over! Stick around for the official afterparty, Space Jam, with members of Cold Fronts at the DJ booth. The Barbary, 951 Frankford Ave., 7pm, $10, All Ages - Emily DiCicco
