Okay, I’ll admit it: I’m a sucker for pop-punk. I would go so far to say one of my favorite bands ever is Green Day. So when a band takes that hybrid genre, melds it with genuine rock, and stirs in a lot of high energy, it’s like hitting the jackpot. Larusso, a four-person rock outfit from Utah, is just that band.
Recalling mid-2000s bands like Yellowcard, All-American Rejects, Sum 41, and even throwing back to groups like the Offspring, Larusso cashes in on the pop-punk revival, but reinterprets the sound in a way that’s wholly 2016. Take their new music video for “Fever,” a hallucinatory trip into one man’s dream world narrated by the quartet. Not only will the song be stuck in your head for days (trust me), you’ll want to watch this professional-quality masterpiece over and over.
Check it out below, and stream “Fever” on SoundCloud. Larusso will be touring throughout 2016 are currently prepping a new album for release. Keep up with these heatseekers on Facebook.
