Sunshine of Your Youth
(Digital Download Card)
Cheerleader follow up 2014's On Your Side EP and their UK-only "Perfect Vision" 7 with their first full-length album. The Sunshine of Your Youth is the debut from Philly-based Cheerleader. NYLON called them "the love child of Passion Pit and St. Lucia." NME listed the band in their Top 10 new bands of 2014, saying "[Cheerleader] recall New Order at their most addictive," while KCRW said Cheerleader's music is "giddy, triumphant world-conquering optimism. This is straight up power pop." Songwriters Joe Haller and Chris Duran are joined by keyboardist and guitarist Josh Pannepacker, drummer Carl Banner and bassist Paul Impellizeri to create their undeniably anthemic freshman effort, The Sunshine of Your Youth. The album is 10 tracks produced and mixed by Mark Needham (Imagine Dragons, Tokyo Police Club).
