We are pleased to welcome Toronto's post-hardcore/emo band, Hesitate to Sunday Drive Records. Having many years in Toronto's local music scene established with previous bands, plus a background in hardcore/DIY ethics has helped to inspire Hesitate's powerful and unique sound. They've taken many influences from their environment and music tastes and have combined them to create songs that blend various genres of post-hardcore, alternative-rock, shoegaze, emo, punk, etc. The result is a strong sonic landscape of music you would enjoy if you like any one of the genres above.
Initially released in 2019, Counting Sheep / Doomgazer is a double single release. On these tracks, the band really hones in on their sound established on their first EP, Hopeless, Happily, and delivers their strongest songs yet. 'Counting Sheep' delivers a faster-paced, post-hardcore track similar in sound to early Basement and Superheaven, while 'Doomgazer' perfectly contrasts with a strong shoegaze/alt-rock sound inspired from 90's bands like Far, Swervedriver, or The Smashing Pumpkins.
SDR is reissuing both singles today on one release. You can stream the singles and pick up the 7" vinyl—as well as a special test press variant w/ alternative-art below. New music coming soon.
